Description
In a course of conversations with a host of her fellow Dubliners, novelist and broadcast journalist Deirdre Purcell learns how her birthplace is viewed by writers, actors, shop workers, and ordinary citizens with far from ordinary remembrances. Here are images of the clip-clop of Guinness drays, of thronged and opulent Corpus Christi processions, of penitential but sociable rounds of the Seven Churches on Holy Thursdays, of Jewish tailoring houses, of the gentle self-sufficiency of the Dublin Protestant—and of an intimate, impenetrable lingo spoken and understood only by those in the city's retail trade.

"Wonderfully evocative ... [the book] wallows in the sights, sounds, smells, customs and characters of a largely vanished city."—Irish Independent
