This spirited collection of short essays adds further critical and autobiographical material to Derek Mahon’s growing body of prose. It includes reflections on flying boats and on the artist William Scott, an American memoir, considerations of the ‘Pound Era’ and of Cyril Connolly, thoughts about advertising and the nature of contemporary society, and praise of the ‘alternative’ character of County Cork, where the author lives.
