Lectures given at the Princess Grace Irish Library on Monday 18 September 1989 and Friday 9 December 1988. Pamphlet form with thick, pale blue DJ, sunned at spine. "Monique Gallagher, born and bred on French soil, but married to an out-an-out Irishman, is the specialist for France, and perhaps for all the European continent, in the astonishing range of multilingual writings of Flann O'Brien: her emphasis in this talks is on the multiple personality, (with no Freudian overtones), of a writer internationally fairly obscure, who could easily have been a candidate to as much celebrity as 'Sunny Jim' . Marc Poitou, the author of the other talk, is probably the staunchest admirer of GBS (become, through his last will and testament, a flat BS!) ever found in France. Instead of focusing his laser-beam on THE MAN, as Monique does, he prefers to redirect in on THE ARMS; and the outcome of this text-oriented approach is a very close shave - a bringing to light of the wittiest Anglo-Irishman's most jealously concealed artefacts.".
