Subject: RE: The Old Triangle
Don't know that one, Art.

he always sounds a bit of a rum character from stories. Donleavy tells this tale about Behan coming to see him in London, with a story about an American magazine that wants him to write something, so can he borrow JPD's typewriter?

Donleavy says no, you just want to pawn it to go boozing. Behan cheerfully admits that is indeed the case, and they sit down together friendly as puppies.

Sounds a difficult chap to sustain a friendship with, supposing he'd got the typewriter.....
