Autobiographical novel by Irish writer Brendan Behan. Behan was brought up in a strongly republican household, his mother was a close friend of Michael Collins. Behan joined Fianna Éireann, the youth section of the IRA at 13.
Brendan's father, Stephen Behan, a house painter who had been active in the Irish War of Independence, read classic literature to the children at bedtime from sources such as Zola, Galsworthy, and Maupassant; his mother, Kathleen, took them on literary tours of the city. If Behan's interest in literature came from his father, his political beliefs were by his mother. She remained politically active all her life and was a personal friend of the Irish republican Michael Collins.
