The Meaning of Life with Gay Byrne
JP Donleavy’s novel The Ginger Man has been called one of the 20th centuries 100 most influential novels. And yet, on publication, it was widely banned as a debauched and decadent text. Gay Byrne talks to the 86-year-old Irish American writer about his origins in the Bronx and the experiences, ideas and beliefs that have shaped his work.
