The Tailor and Ansty

The Tailor and Ansty

Eric Cross, The Tailor and ANsty, -224 pages- Published by Mercier Press; 2 edition (December 31, 1999) Synopsis: Banned soon after its first publication in 1942, and the subject of much bitter controversy, this has become a modern Irish classic, promising to make immortal the Tailor and his irrepressible wife, Ansty. 

The Tailor never travelled further than Scotland, yet the breadth of the world could not contain the wealth of his humour and fantasy. All human life is here - marriages, inquests, matchmaking, wakes - and always the Tailor, his wife and their black cow.
