Deoraíocht (Exile) ranks as one of the most colourful and audacious Irish novels ever written. Moving between London and Galway, it depicts the joys, and mostly the tribulations of the down and out and the flotsam and jetsam of an uncaring society. The author touches on the culture-loss of the Irish diaspora, a theme not without relevance today. Ó Conaire’s rattling and quixotic narrative, in all its sweep and detail, its humour and horror, a heady cocktail of innocence and corruption, is finely captured in this long overdue English-language translation.
