— Paperback original.
— First U.S. edition. British publication by Hart-Davis, McGibbon Ltd (’76).
— A companion to The Best of Myles, Further Cuttings culls more scathing selections from Cruiskeen Lawn, Flann O’Brien’s column in the Irish Times written under the pseudonym Myles na Gopaleen.
— This volume covers the years 1947-1957 and finds O’Brien’s alter ego clashing with the law on numerous charges, including larceny, using bad language, and marrying without the consent of his parents. It also includes several bizarre obituaries, witty criticisms of George Bernard Shaw, Sean O’ Faolain, and other literary figures, the return of the preposterous Brother, and the first article ever ascribed to Myles (published in 1940).
