The Best of Myles
By

Rating
The Best of Myles brings together the best of Flann O'Brien's newspaper column "Cruiskeen Lawn," written over a nearly thirty-year period. Covering such subjects as plumbers, the justice system, and improbable inventions, O'Brien (whose real name was Brian O'Nolan, though his newspaper pseudonym was Myles na Gopaleen) is replete with zany humor and biting satire directed at the Irish and their preoccupations. Most of all, however, The Best of Myles displays O'Brien's unique mastery of language and style.

Reviews

The best comic writer I can think of. -- S.J. Perelman Brilliant, morosely inventive comic turns devoted to O'Brien's favourite topics: the literary life, the Gaelic Revival, civil service bureaucracy, booze and its discontents. Observer A lot of American readers think that S.J. Perelman was the humorous essayist of the century; but who did Perelman himself consider the best comic writer around? Flann O'Brien, aka Myles na Gopaleen, aka Brian O'Nolan... Not to be missed. Washington Post
