About the Book:


    Albert Cagney – no Greek Adonis but at the same time with a face not quite like the back of a bus – comes to Dublin from Limerick in the early sixties. He procures a boring office job and moves to Leeson Street with the intentions of becoming a professional actor. The adventures that follow are variously comic, ribald and eye-opening, and are populated with savoury, colourful and devious characters.


The straight-up nineteen year old has little idea of the heady mix of music, theatre, acting, ready women, drinking, sex, love, theft, blackmail, work, homosexuality and hill walking that will overtake him……
