Drochscéal ar an drochshaol curtha in eagar ag Myles Na gCopaleen.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest Irish-language novels of the 20th century, An Béal Bocht is a classic satire in Irish by one of the century’s great writers, Myles na gCopaleen/Flann O’Brien/Brian O’Nolan. This extremely funny book, with its rain-sodden peasants of Corca Dorcha who combine pretensions to proficiency in English with true caint na ndaoine in the hope of impressing the insatiable Irish-language enthusiasts, was the proof that the Irish of the Revival had come of age.
