1 edition published in 1998 in German and held by 1 library worldwide
"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."--Jacket
