520    "Colm Tóibín begins his incisive, revelatory Mad, Bad, 
       Dangerous to Know with a walk through the Dublin streets 
       where he went to university--a wide-eyed boy from the 
       country--and where three Irish literary giants also came 
       of age: Wilde, Yeats, and Joyce. Elegant, profound, and 
       riveting, Mad, Bad, Dangerous to Know illuminates not only
       the complex relationships between three of the greatest 
       writers in the English language and their fathers, but 
       also illustrates the surprising ways these men surface in 
       their work. Through these stories of fathers and sons, 
       Tóibín recounts the resistance to English cultural 
       domination, the birth of modern Irish cultural identity, 
       and the extraordinary contributions of these complex and 
       masterful authors"--|cProvided by publisher.
