Mad, Bad, Dangerous to Know: The Fathers of Wilde, Yeats and Joyce
Mad, Bad, Dangerous to Know: The Fathers of Wilde, Yeats and Joyce, about William Wilde, John Butler Yeats and John Joyce, the fathers of writers Oscar, W.B. and James respectively. Toibin brings to life the marvelous imperfections of these interesting fathers and the ways in which they influenced the lives of their sons and how they show up in the writers’ work. Fans of Irish Literature are those readers most likely to enjoy this finely written book that walks us through Dublin and offers great insight into complex relationships.
