Translated from Irish by Valentin Iremonger
This book is an extraordinarily vivid picture of an Irish navvy’s life in the England of the 1950s. Workless days, the hardships of work camps, lonesome partings after trips home, periods of intense isolation and occasional bitterness were all part of the picture. Originally published in Irish to wide acclaim, this translation was first published in 1964.
