  • Meet My Maker the Mad Moleculeby J.P. Donleavy

    The Lilliput Press 2011; US$ 7.28

They are almost all elegies -- sad songs of decayed hope, bitter little jitterbuggings of an exasperated soul, with barracuda bites of lacerating humour he brings blood-red into the gray of fate. These stories and sketches move between Europe and America, New... more...

    The Lilliput Press 2011; US$ 7.28

    J. P. Donleavy has been writing now for forty-five years and, as he admits, an answer to the question why is ' difficult to dig out of a long past'. Yet over these pages he author's query is largely answered for him: he has written so much for so long because he writes so very well. From the banks of the Seine to the streets of the Bronx, from the... more...

  • Myles Before Mylesby Flann O'Brien

    The Lilliput Press 2011; US$ 10.19

    Myles Before Myles is a wonderfully funny selection of writings from the pen of Brian O'Nolan (aka Flann O'Brien, Myles na Gopaleen, George Knowall).

Like much of O'Nolan's most entertaining work, the pieces in this did not originally appear in book form, but in periodicals... more...
