Bryan MacMahon is one of Ireland's finest writers. A Kerryman, he is also one of its most famous teachers. The world has beaten a path to Listowel to look at, and listen to, The Master. This book is an eloquent and colourful chronicle of a rich and happy life: it is the story of a man who loves literature and his fellow man and who has ever been a fighter for both. From the day when he took up a teaching post in his native Listowel he has shown himself as a dedicated and enlightened teacher, a short-story writer of international stature, and a public speaker of the rarest verve and vitality. He is also a man in love with language, not only English which he uses so magically, but also with Irish and indeed Shelta, the secret language of the travelling people, a knowledge which he uses to such effect in his play and novel The Honey Spike.
