Brendan Behan - Borstal Boy HB
Who was this man, this gentle, gifted poet, barroom brawler, IRA patriot, Dublin 'town clown,' ex-convict, bloated, toothless alcoholic, avowed bisexual, and publicity-hungry pub crawler obsessed with becoming a world-famous writer? Were his plays-'The Hostage' and 'The Quare Fellow,' and what he wrote of his experiences as a 'Borstal Boy'-mere whiskey talk and political blarney? The answers are here in this sympathetic, yet devastatingly frank chronicle of a meteoric life which made headlines all over the world. . . "
