Description - Handy Andy by Samuel Lover
Handy Andy is the most enduringly popular of the novels of Samuel Lover, author, artist and muscian. The laughing philosopher of the story is Andy Rooney, a fellow who had 'the most singularly ingenious knack of doing everything the wrong way. More than simply a comic novel, it has been described as a 'pill to purge melancholy'. Lover may be equally remembered as a painter, most notably for his minature portrait of Paganini, and for his many ballads. There is a wonderful musicality in the laguage which, combined with the accomplished artist's eye for composition, makes this comic tale of Irish Life a volume to treasure.
