Demy octavo. pp. 256. Olive green cloth with an illustration of two farmers, leaning against a fence on the upper cover, title in maroon on spine. Cut out signature, signed by Patrick Kavanagh on front endpaper. A very good to fine copy in near fine dust jacket. Very
scarce.
The author once wrote that this book was not only the best but the only authentic account of life as it was lived in Ireland this [20th] century: “a man should not be afraid to tell the truth, even when it is in favour of himself”. Given the careful qualifications, that is not an idle brag. The first edition of Tarry Flynn was initially banned in Ireland but later, for unknown reasons, the ban was lifted.
