Description

Brendan Behan's genius was to strike a chord between critic and common man.

When he died, at the age of 41, he was arguably the most celebrated Irish writer of the twentieth century. After the Wake is a collection of seven prose works and a series of articles.

It includes all that exists of an unfinished novel, `The Catacombs', and pieces together items whose comic and fanciful accounts evoke Flann O'Brien.

Also featured are works of acknowledged excellence, `The Confirmation Suit' and `A Woman of No Standing'.

This writing bears all the hallmarks of the author's talent - an ability to bring characters to life quickly and unforgettably, a sharp ear for dialogue and dialect, and a natural vocation for story-telling. This diverse collection is a delightful and entertaining windfall from one of Ireland's most colourful writers.

An essential complement to Behan's master works.
