THE IRISH MALE
His Greatest Hits
This is a selection from O’Connor’s acclaimed radio diaries for RTE One’s ‘Drivetime’ programme with a compendium of the best of his comic journalism and other non-fiction, a hilarious take on the world of the Irish male. Here is fear and loathing, pity and terror, the rhythm and the blues, the country and the western. Featuring interviews, diaries, writing on rock ‘n’ roll and fatherhood, and a reprint of his classic World Cup Diary, these vivid snapshots build into a perceptive and absolutely hilarious portrait of contemporary Irish life, both at home and abroad.
“If you need to spend an afternoon with a silly grin, and sometimes tears of laughter, this is your only man.”
“Smart, funny – could convince any romantic of the wonders of the Irish male.”
