The Devil's Diary

Format: Paperback
Pub. Date: 7/18/2013
Publisher(s): Bloomsbury Reader
Availability: This title is currently not available.


Idealistic love and death, sibling rivalry and obsessive lust are themes familiar to McGinley's work, focusing here on Arty Brennan, who built factories, a supermarket and a noisy motel, trading a spiritually enriching culture for a "hippiedrome" of second-rate 20th century glitter.
