[The Dubliner Diaries is] a smart and engaging read'. Frank Coughlan, The Irish Independent.
'Thoughtful, often hilarious and endearingly
self-deprecating. Trevor White might well be
the pompous so-and-so he admits to being.
But he's also the most likeable pompous so-
and-so in Ireland today ... One of the funniest
and most astute pieces of writing yet on the
national midlife crisis we briefly called the
Celtic Tiger.' Paul Howard, aka Ross O'Carroll-Kelly
In the summer of 2000 a young Irish journalist returned from New York to launch a magazine about life in boomtown Dublin.
The Dubliner was an instant failure, and within a few months it was close to bankruptcy. For the next seven years Trevor White struggled to keep the magazine afloat. Along the way he managed to alienate nearly everyone in Ireland.
The Dubliner Diaries is an awkward history of the Celtic Tiger by a man who tried to capture it, and ended up being mauled.
