Like "The Best of Myles" and "Further Cuttings from Cruiskeen Lawn" (both available from Dalkey Archive Press), "At War" is a collection of Flann O'Brien's columns written for the "Irish Times"> under the pseudonym Myles na Gopaleen. Taken from the war years of 1940-45, these writings provide plenty of acerbic wit and persistent prodding of "the good people of Ireland." And in typical O'Brien fashion, no one is safe from his opinionated attacks. His oftentimes hysterical musings include discussions of theater, what it means to be Irish, ideas for alternative pubs and liquors, advice for children, and ways to improve the home.
