The Dallas Morning News has a review of a 'funny' Irish writer whose works are densely written (sounding a bit less impenetrable than Ulysses). Though Flann O'Brien, nom de plume of Brian O'Nolan, was a contemporary of Joyce, his work until a recent compendium was apparently hard to get. The review is fun partially because of a pretty sprinkle of Gaelic. Surviving with Wolves, 'a children's view of the Holocaust,' reviewed in Haaretz, would be amazing in a different way.
