From his recollections of a suburban Irish childhood to his widely acclaimed radio diaries for RTÉ’s Drivetime, award-winning novelist Joseph O’Connor tells tales that both parody and illuminate the strange times in which we live.

In this shorter selection of classic journalism and non-fiction, Joseph O’Connor displays an eye for the absurd, a lightness of touch and a joyous comic spirit.

From losing his heart at a flirting class in Manhattan, to becoming a father,The Shorter Irish Male is a suitcase stuffed with self-mockeries and belly laughs.
