Donleavy breaks every rule of writing and comes up with masterpieces; been doing it for fifty years. In the "Ginger Man," one of his best, he dissects the mind and spirit of a rogue, dragging the reader in and out of Irish saloons, through troubled affairs, into hot water and nasty entanglements, and, despite the decadence of Dangerfield, you enjoy the scamp's company.
It's the best trip you'll ever take to Ireland.
