New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company. Very Good+ in Good dj. 1927. American Edition. Hardcover Second Printing. NOISBN .

He falls in love with a girl who strays from the streets into his life, and this love for a weak woman fixes its talons in his heart and eventually destroys them both." Another Irish laughfest by the author of "The Informer." Reproduces the striking jacket portrait of Gilhooley from the first U.K. edition (Jonathan Cape, 1926), by John Austen -- although printed in such a way as to partially obliterate his signature. .
