Feckless, unwashed, charming, penurious Sebastian Balfe Dangerfield, Trinity College Law student, Irish American with an English Accent, maroon in the ould country and dreaming of dollars and ready women, stumbles from the public house to the pawnbrokers, murmuring delusive enticements in the ear of any girl who'll listen, in delirious search of freedom, wealth, and the recognition he feels is his due. Lyrical and ribald, illuminating, poignant and hugely entertaining, The Ginger Man is a work of authentic comic genius.

Review:
A triumph. - Guardian ('Mr Donleavy's creation...has left a mark on a literary generation.’)

#NAME? ('Comic, dirty, and delightful. And one of those books which reveals its quality from the first line... The Ginger Man is the picaresque novel to stop them all, lusty, violent, wildly funny.’)

Dorothy Parker
