Plunkett fills up his episodic cross-cuts with all the right echoes-Joycean give-and-take, heady pub-talk, songs, slogans, headlines, brooding adolescents, ironic and poetic elders (the neighborhood eccentric, O'Sheehan, is a fount of Irish history and poetry: ""I am Ireland"").

Set in Dublin during the Lockout of 1913, Strumpet City is a panoramic novel of city life. It embraces a wide range of social milieux, from the miseries of the tenements to the cultivated, bourgeois Bradshaws. It introduces a memorable cast of characters: the main protagonist, Fitz, a model of the hard-working, loyal and abused trade unionist; the isolated, well-meaning and ineffectual Fr O'Connor; the wretched and destitute Rashers Tierney. His other novels include Farewell Companions and The Circus Animals. He was an accomplished short-story writer and also wrote for radio and theatre.

James Plunkett Kelly, or James Plunkett (21 May 1920 – 28 May 2003), was an Irish writer. He was educated at Synge Street CBS. Plunkett grew up among the Dublin working class and they, along with the petty bourgeoisie and lower intelligentsia, make up the bulk of the dramatis personae of his oeuvre

Written by my uncle, this 20 year-old novel is still a joy to read. It is the coming-of-age story of the protagonist in a time of war in Europe. The back drop of Dublin, the "Troubles" so recent in the author's memory, and the palpable warmth of the surrounding country-side puts you in touch with Ireland as it was 60 years ago. It is a tale of reality (biographical) and hardship experienced by a family impoverished by the untimely death of my grandfather in 1932: and how success can be borne out of disaster. If you enjoyed "Strumpet City", this book is no less impressive.

This novel, the follow up to Strumpet City, has none of the class of the old whore of a book. Farewell Companions is overly nostalgic and is more like a loose and undefined family history than a novel. The writing is not tight and is really quite rambling at times. It is a book of snapshots and cameos. I do not recommend it as being any way as good as Strumpet City, which is a pure masterpiece. Interesting as a historical account of Ireland from the twenties to the fourties, but there are better!
