Description
Escaping from the Limbo where the protagonists of unfinished literary works are trapped, a gentleman named Mountmellik and his servant MacGilla enjoy life on Earth so much that they summon other characters from works by F. Scott Fitzgerald and George Moore, plus the giant Eevell of Craglee, Queen of the Munster Hosts of Fairy to join them. In Desmond MacNamara's distinctly Irish shaggy dog story, these five hatch a scheme by which they can spring more characters from Limbo, all while holding the author of this book captive. Suffice it to say, the author always gets the last word.

"Imagine a boisterous modern fairy tale, replete with folklore motifs, stories within stories, improbabilities and wonders and little acts of literary homage and affiliation. Does all this make your head swirl? Just relax and take another sip of Guinness."ŚMichael Dirda
