Tarry Flynn, Paperback



A man's mother can be a terrible burden sometimes. For Tarry Flynn - poet, farmer and lover-from-afar of beautiful young virgins - the responsibility of family, farm, poetic inspiration and his own unyielding lust is a heavy one.

The only solution is to rise above all - or escape over the nearest horizon.

Like "The Green Fool", his autobiography, Patrick Kavanagh's "Tarry Flynn" is an idyllic and beautifully evocative account of life as it was lived in Ireland earlier this century.
