Ireland's peerless comic writer Flann O'Brien was also known as the irascible Myles na gCopaleen, under which name he published the anarchic Cruiskeen Lawn column in the Irish Times between 1940 and 1966. In this special event for Birkbeck's Arts Week 2019,  Birkbeck's Tobias Harris and Joseph Brooker will tread Myles’s elaborate multilingual labyrinth, with the help of reader Hugh Wilde.
