AS I WAS GOING DOWN SACKVILLE STREET

This is a must book for anyone in touch with the Irish writers; for the rest of the literary-minded public it may prove pretty much of a teaser. Gogarty writes as some people talk -- intimately and humanly and casually of all sorts of people whom he knows -- and expects others to know -- by their first names or nicknames, and one has to be a mental gymnast to follow him. However, so much of the book is refreshing and original and contains so many entertaining anecdotes of a few generally recognizable celebrities such as Yeats, George Moore, Talbot Clifton, and AE, that one forgives him his vagaries and occasionally mannered style.
