"The book demonstrates in detail what O'Nolan's varying blend of parody, satire and surreal humour owed to the peculiar cultural climate of the mid-twentieth-century Ireland. By exploring the links between comedy and culture, it exposes the curiously ambivalent response to the culture of the new state, and particularly to the position of the writer within it."--BOOK JACKET."
