Leaving Dublin

A companion volume to Brian Brennan's acclaimed novel, The Love of One's Country, this autobiography is an engaging and entertaining exploration of Brennan's life in Ireland and Canada. It begins in middle-class Dublin, covers his stints as a travelling musician and broadcaster in Canada, and culminates in a description of his career as an award-winning journalist and best-selling author. With passion, candour, humour and vivid stories, Brennan tells how he left a soul-destroying job in the Irish civil service to seek new opportunities in a country where he had no friends and no family connections. He offers revealing glimpses of suburban life in the postwar Ireland of the 1950s, the commercial scene in Canada during the 1960s, and the commercial radio and newspaper scene during the last third of the 20th century.
