    1. “A cold misty rain descends streaking the windows down an empty shopping street. The university baleful behind its great iron gates, a light in the porter’s lodge, a faint yellow beacon at the end of a street where the massive porticoes of the bank shelter lurking figures on this barren Saturday afternoon. Two orange beaked swans paddling up stream under an iron foot bridge arching over a river’s sour green waters. At a black door up three stone steps this grey coated gaunt figure looks ea [...]


    2. Properly insane. I feel Donleavy should always be read with a brandy, in just y-fronts (preferably sullied) with some kind of deformed-looking groinal bulge, tuba music in the background. Nightmarishly slapstick, but with a kind of baroque melancholia throughout, and lots of posh people getting the horn. My favourite writer. I'd maybe not start off with this one though.


    3. A man with three testicles inherits a castle on the coast of Ireland. The book reads like Hunter S. Thompson meets Mervyn Peake, or National Lampoon's Animal House in Castle Gormenghast. Parts are funny - but it meanders with one chaotic misadventure after another going on for too long.


    4. This is my favorite J.P. Donleavy novel, although I can't quite say why. It's not perfect, but it's sweet and spit-take funny. I've read it twice, and I rarely read anything twice.


    5. My younger self definitely gave this 5 stars. Haven't read it in years. Probably time to reread and see how it holds up.




    6. This book reminded me of The Cat in the Hat, the premise of which (in case you’ve never read it) is: a brother and sister are alone at home when they hear a loud bump which is quickly followed by the arrival of the Cat in the Hat, a tall, anthropomorphic feline in a red and white striped hat and a red bow tie who proposes to entertain the children with some tricks he knows and then proceeds to wreak havoc. There’s not much of a plot but it does have point or at least a moral.In The Onion Eat [...]


    7. Hm, this book wasn't my cup of tea. It was a bit on the incoherent side,though I followed it well enough. A man inherits a castle from his great aunt (his only living relative), finds it occupied with some servants, in a bit of disrepair, and throughout the story many colorful characters invite themselves over to live there and partake of his food and wine that he cannot afford. He also happens to be endowed with three testicles (hence his name, Clementine of the Three Glands), and everyone is v [...]


    8. I read this quite some time ago. It is not a run of the mill novel, but enjoyable once you get your head around it. Probably best to give it a wide berth if you are easily offended.


    9. Onion Eaters is the first book I've read of by J.P. Dunleavy, even ilthough I'll admit I've forgotten many of the books I've read. I'll come upon one such on a bookshelf crammed with my underlinings of memorable passages, as is my wont, but have no memory of having read it; or I'll realize after fifty or a hundred pages that it is becoming too familiar because I've been there before. I believe I'd have remembered The Onion Eaters though. It is one strange dude of a book. Witty at times perhaps, [...]


    10. This one struck me a little different than Donleavy's other books, in a good way though. Still has the traditional Donleavy momentum, humor, and internal monologue, but with a different feel. A very different protagonist from Donleavy's usual sort, not even counting the number of testicles. I'm surprised I had never heard of this one before. Seems to me that this would be a necessary book for anyone interested in Donleavy.


    11. I read Donleavy's books at University and loved them, this was my favourite. In which our hero, Clementine Cleaver of the three glands, inherits a vast crumbling pile on the coast of Ireland and finds himself besieged by an army of unwanted houseguests including a spiritual healer, a snake fancier and a host of others. Its wild rambunctious flow-of-consciousness stuff, drunken, sexy and irresponsible. Will have to go back to it and see if it still resonates.


    12. Another uni set text I wish I had never read. Seriously, what does this novel have to offer the world? Bloody nothing, that's what? I wish I could unread this, it was that bad. Consider Donleavy on my, sick writers I will never go near again list.


    13. I first read this book when I was traveling (many years ago), and I absolutely loved it. I quoted from it to my traveling companion so many time he got sick of it. It has a strange, absurd sort of humour that I really love, and some bizarre characters that I think are truly original.


    14. Wild, rambling story made up largely of a number of comic set pieces. Funny but, for me, didn't really go anywhere (by design)


    15. A favourite. This one is like a screwball comedy written by a poet. You'll never read anything else like this book, even by Donleavy.






    16. This was my first Donleavy book and my last. Slapstick names, like McFugger, and precious little genuine wit – so far as I can remember.
