Hardback.  First edition. Illustrated by Paul Hogarth.  Behan’s ‘anthropological investigations cover a wide variety of places, people and things, always accompanied by ribald anecdote and rumbustious description. Whether he is buying a paper off an old lady in Harlem, swimming in the baths at the Young Men’s Hebrew Association, visiting a bum on the Bowery, or having a jar with “one of his own” in an Irish saloon on Third Avenue, he has always an eye for the colour of the situation and the wit to express it.’  Condition: dust-jacket worn to edges with some sunning to rear panel, otherwise very good.
