The author once wrote that this book was not only the best but the only authentic account of life as itwas lived in Ireland this [20th] century: “a man should not be afraid to tell the truth, even when it is infavour 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 banwas lifted. The Pilot Press was declared bankrupt before the ban was lifted, so copies are extremelyrare.
