TRAVEL DIARIES 1970s – 1980s
By Jean and John Dillon
In this tome, Jean and John Dillon open their old travel diaries to take us fondly back to the days of pre-millennium travel, when getting there was achieved with the use of maps and signposts, as opposed to pings and notifications, and being there was recorded in a daily journal.
The Lockdown Papers
SOCIAL AND POLITICAL ESSAYS
By John Dillon
During the long days of lockdown, author and academic John Dillon took time to go through and his old papers and essays. The resulting collection is a splendid miscellany of satire, reflection and analysis of Irish life over five decades, as originally published in Irish newspaper columns.
