"...a work of art if you do not concentrate on the main story line!  Forget all these pookahs and fairies; forget Finn McCool and Sweeney the King.  Dermot Trellis - that's your story right there, Flann m'boy!"  Brian O'Nolan shook his head.  Where do all these voices come from?  And none without signifcation.  Must be the drink, another of which he poured, and went back to his writing.
