With the help of his sister's husband, he'd converted it into thirteen bedsits

With the help of his sister's husband, he'd converted it into thirteen bedsits. He looked around him now; a few bits of chipboard, a couple of extra beds and he could have squeezed in four students, even six, no problem - the dead body wouldn't have been noticed in the middle of their filth and parties. The place had potential. He'd find out who owned it.

This is a marvelous book. At the outset I wondered how fifteen Irish writers could come up with anything that even bordered on coherence, but they did all of that and more. One author picks up where the last left off, and you go barreling through the plot start to finish. It's terribly funny; at times, I laughed myself silly. It's a good story and a lot of fun. You don't really have to be familiar with James Joyce; although, if you are, you will be amused at the suggestion of his influence along the way. It's a rollicking good read. I highly recommend it.

I read this a few years ago and just bought it for my daughter. I won't give up my copy. My suggestion is read it on a blue day or night. It is good to be Irish.

Neat concept of each chapter being written by a different author, with each one adding and embellishing the previous chapter. Loved the humor!

I was recommended this book by amazon.com. I just can't recall why, but I had it put on my wish list when my brother decided to give it to me for a birthday gift last summer. After going through a long horrendous, yet exciting read of another Irishman John Connolly's "Every Dead Thing", I welcomed the change to the light hearted when my fiance thought it would be cool to go ahead with a story as witty as this one. Witty is one thing, but there were some parts that was truly laugh out loud.(...)
Yeats is Dead is a story without being a story itself. Written loosley by 15 Irish authors just out there to have some good old fashioned fun. Theyd o an excellent job with the idea and all, but fall extrememly short when it comes to ending the whole story. Under each author, the characters just seem to be suffering from some sort of schizophrenia with their feeling jumping from one point to another. It's just unbelievable to conceive, unbeliveable to believe, but truly enjoyable to go through it along through the end.
The book is an excellent read at just any setting. The beauty of it being not truly knowing how the tory is going to twist and turn so that you come out with the final chapter. I think Frank McCourt just didn't know what to do with it and hastily ended it. All in all, this is a funny book that deserves all the attention. You just love reading an Irishman's (or woman) tale. When they're drunk and in the tell tale mode they're funny and when they're sober, you still can't take anything they say seriously. And that's exactly how it is with this very one book.

While not a devotee of mysteries, I was interested in this after reading "Finbar's Hotel" and "Ladies Night at Finbar's Hotel". I anticipated being somewhat disappointed since the initial concept is getting squeezed dry. "Finbar's Hotel" while fun, is by no means great literature, despite the array of authors who participated. "Ladies Night" was a clever sequel. Part of the fun of both is attempting to guess who wrote which chapters, and imagining how the authors collaborated to determine the order that would lay the foundation for the subsequent writers' work.
"Yeats is Dead" is fun and clever. And it is interesting in this variant of the concept to actually know who wrote which chapters. I was pleased that as I began the work it appeared to match the wit and quality of the other works. However, about half way the theme starts to get stretched thin, and it begins to read as if the later authors were striving to impress their peers. This does not flow as well as the earlier works in this "series" and comes across as more of a collection of related but parallel short stories.
While I enjoyed "Angela's Ashes" (but definitely didn't like "'Tis"), I don't regard Frank McCourt as being in the same league as writers like Roddy Doyle as McCourt's works were memoirs whereas the other authors are creative artists. I was pleasantly surprised as I began McCourt's final chapter, but felt the quality diminished as it proceeded and regret that he was chosen to conclude the book.
"Yeats is Dead" is fun and worthwhile primarily due to interest in who is involved in the effort and how they collaborate.

An interesting format sees 15 of Irelands top modern writers each write one chapter of this novel. The book is a mad dash by a zany cast of characters as they chase the holy grail of a manuscript supposedly written by James Joyce but never published before his death. The characters are hilarious as they bungle their way from one mishap to another. A brilliant and funny ride of a novel.

Fifteen Irish writers take their turn (one chapter each) at ratcheting up the silliness while developing a story centered on the discovery of James Joyce's final unpublished work. Organized crime, organized crime fighters, and Irish society in general take on a generous helping of ribbing while each author does his or her best to out do the previous. What is funny is how many of the authors take what was written before and then throw in a bizarre twist. Or just simply kill off a character nurtured and developed by a previous writer. One poor soul about halfway through makes some attempt at stabilizing the story, only to be completely blown out of the water by the next. And yet at the same time, a couple of gags presented near the beginning of the book find their way into every chapter up to the end.
All in all it is a very fun collection of work, and edifying as well in the sense that the reader may find a new author or two to try out after putting this one down. Because of the nature of this type of work, naturally the writing styles and quality vary greatly from one chapter to the next. This fact in itself will disturb the reader that attempts to take the novel too seriously. Although why this feat is even attempted when you are reading about a ginger haired young Irishman who likes to speak in American ghetto slang is beyond me.
