Some friends went to Ireland last year (one of them was born there) and brought us back an Irish Writers Calendar for 2018.
Each month has a picture of the writer, his dates, and a quote by him. Yes, him. All men, as you see in the picture. I've only read some poetry by Yeats, two stories by Joyce, a play by Beckett, a poem by Kavanagh, and quotes by Wilde. So, I have a lot of new-to-me writers to look forward to. January's author was Brendan Behan, and these are his words:
"It's not that the Irish are cynical. It's rather that they have a wonderful lack of respect for everything and everybody."
