Under the pseudonym Myles na Gopaleen, Flann O' Brien wrote a daily column in the `Irish Times' called `Cruiskeen Lawn' for over twenty years which hilariously satirised the absurdities and solemnities of Dublin life.With shameless irony and relentless high spirits Myles' 'Cruiskeen Lawn' became the most feared, respected and uproarious newspaper column in the whole of Ireland from its first appearance in 1940 until his death in 1966.This wonderful selection from the 'Cruiskeen Lawn' columns is a modern classic that will appeal to lovers of absurdity and sharp comic observation everywhere.
