    Default Request - The Poor Mouth by Flann O'Brien/Brian O'Nolan

    Would be wonderful if anybody could share this book - wonderfully funny, up there with Cold Comfort Farm or the best of Spike Milligan.
    Some of the downloads available turn out to be another book of his, The Hard Life.

    The most recent issue is from Paladin.

    Cheers

    The Poor Mouth relates the story of one Bonaparte O'Coonassa,
    born in a cabin in a fictitious village called Corkadoragha in western Ireland equally renowned for its beauty and the abject poverty of its residents. Potatoes constitute the basis of his family's daily fare, and they share both bed and board with the sheep and pigs. A scathing satire on the Irish, this work brought down on the author's head the full wrath of those who saw themselves as the custodians of Irish language and tradition when it was first published in Gaelic in 1941.
