The young Gogarty, medical student, amateur cyclist, philosopher and lover of good conversation, enjoyed a rowdy, exuberant lifestyle in Dublin in the early 1900s. In this lightly disguised autobiography he gives an intriguing account of the regular round of pubs, pawnshops and bawdy houses of the city, interrupted briefly by the serious business of anatomy exams.

His enthusiasm, ready wit and keen observation capture the characters and manners of the city and of the period in an entertaining and highly readable story.
