On August 28, 1922, thousands of Dubliners came to pay respects to Michael Collins, the martyred Irish revolutionary, while elsewhere in the same city on the same afternoon, Michael Lyons, a cooper who worked for Guinness and author Jarman's grandfather, inexplicably drowned in the Grand Canal. These events became the seed for this combination of memoir, history, and travelogue, which relates the events of author Jarman's visits to Ireland, his family's past, and Ireland's bloody political history. Some descriptions of sex and violence, some strong language. 2002.
