Summary:
Set in Ireland just after World War II, The Ginger Man is J.P. Donleavy's wildly funny, picaresque classic novel of the misadventures of Sebastian Dangerfield, a young American ne'er-do-well studying at Trinity College in Dublin. He barely has time for his studies as he avoids bill collectors, makes love to anything in a skirt and tries to survive without having to descend into the bottomless pit of steady work. Dangerfield's appetite for women, liquor, and general rougishness is insatiable- and he satisfies it with endless charm.
