“One of the funniest and most astute pieces of writing yet on the national midlife crisis we briefly called the Celtic Tiger. Unwittingly, Trevor White’s diary of a small publisher’s struggle to become a big publisher has presented us with the era’s Remembrance of Times Past, capturing it all, from the giddy optimism of the early years of the boom right through to the inevitable fin de siècle. Thoughtful, often hilarious and endearingly self-deprecating. Trevor White might well be the pompous so-and-so he admits to being. But he’s also the most likable pompous so-and-so in Ireland today.”
