The journalist who fought to save Dublin tells his own remarkable story.In his decades-long career at the Irish Times, Frank McDonald became uniquely beloved and influential for his tireless campaigning on behalf of Dublin's built environment. He was, meanwhile, living a remarkably varied and interesting life. In The Distractions of Dublin, McDonald tells the stories behind his public advocacy for a more beautiful and humane city, and of his battles (and lunches) with politicians and developers. And he also tells a more intimate story of growing up gay in Dublin at a time when homosexuality was entirely hidden, and of how he came to terms with it. Passionate, indiscreet and seriously entertaining, The Distractions of Dublin is an instant classic of journalistic memoir.
