Book: Lady Gregory's Toothbrush
"It is the old battle between those who use a toothbrush and those who don't." So wrote Lady Augusta Gregory to William Butler Yeats back in 1909. She was referring to the riots two years earlier that greeted Synge's 'Playboy of the Western World' and, although she didn't know it at the time, she was also providing the title for Colm Toibín's biographical essay 'Lady Gregory's Toothbrush'.
