Publishers Description: The triumphant conclusion to the trilogy that began with A Star Called Henry Roddy Doyles irrepressible Irish rebel Henry Smart is back-and he is not mellowing with age. Saved from death in Californias Monument Valley by none other than Henry Fonda, he ends up in Hollywood collaborating with legendary director John Ford on a script based on his life. Returning to Ireland in 1951 to film The Quiet Man- which to Henrys consternation has been completely sentimentalized-he severs his relationship with Ford. His career in film over, Henry settles into a quiet life in a village north of Dublin, where he finds work as a caretaker for a boys school and takes up with a woman named Missus OKelly, whom he suspects- but is not quite sure-may be his long-lost wife, the legendary Miss OShea. After being injured in a political bombing in Dublin in 1974, Henry is profiled in the newspaper and suddenly the secret of his rebel past is out. Henry is a national hero. Or are his troubles just beginning Raucous, colorful, epic, and full of intrigue and incident, The Dead Republic is also a moving love story-the magnificent final act in the life of one of Roddy Doyles most unforgettable characters.
