Dirty Foreigners: O'Brien 'The Lonely Girl' (1962)
This novel is the further adventures of Caithleen and her sidekick Baba in the big city, as they search for fun, love and a free meal. A sequel to ‘The Country Girls’ (1960) it was automatically banned by a board who hated its author.
· There was no such thing as a safe book. The Caithleens of Ireland – young women – were especially susceptible to notions.
· Caithleen’s independent life outside her father’s control can be snuffed out at his whim.
· The humour in the novel is really something, it’s magnificent.
