Leonard's sequel to the best-selling "Home Before Night and Out After Dark" sees him leave adolescence behind and rising to prominence in the Dublin theatre world of the 1960s and 1970s, a time which sees him produce many of the plays, novels and screenplays for which he is celebrated. Leonard depicts a period of intense artistic and cultural upheaval in Ireland, stirring in theatre anecdotes, and vignettes of Patrick Kavanagh and Brenda Behan. The result is a witty and entertaining analysis of Dublin and Dubliners by one of Ireland's finest living playwrights.
