This book is a veritable A to Z of Dalkey from the 1930s to the 1980s. An intimate picture of the town and the surrounding landscape is provided through the author as he grows up, comes of age, leaves and returns. "The Keyes were as stubborn as jennets. Like dreams, they went by contraries...." A magical book.
