The Secret World of the Irish Male Summary

The Secret World of the Irish Male by Joseph O'Connor

The author of "Desperadoes" and "Cowboys and Indians" directs his acid humour upon contemporary Irish life at home and abroad. The result is a headlong, love-struck, end-of-millenium, coast-to-coast tour of the frustrations, contraditions and giddying glories of being Irish in the 1990s. Dissecting the cultural icons of our time, from the Taoiseach to the taxi driver, from the kiwi-fruit-flavoured condom to the Kilfenora ceilidh band, and discoursing on everyone from James Joyce to Jesus Christ, from Rolf Harris to Daniel O'Donnell, O'Connor picks his way between sinking pints in London-Irish pubs to pumping iron in Dublin gymnasia. Fear and loathing, pity and terror, country and western, love, rock and rock, and football are all encompassed by these snapshots of modern Irish life.
