He wrote throughout his life, which ended in Dublin on April 1, 1966. His other novels include The Dalkey Archive, The Third Policeman, The Hard Life, and The Poor Mouth, all available from Dalkey Archive Press.

Reviews

A real writer, with the true comic spirit. A really funny book.--James Joyce

This is just the book to give your sister if she's a loud, dirty, boozy girl!--Dylan Thomas

At Swim-Two-Birds has remained in my mind ever since it first appeared as one of the best books of our century. A book in a thousand . . . in the line of Ulysses and Tristram Shandy.--Graham Greene
