Christ on a bike. Utterly bonkers.You don't know what you're talking about. Waters is a true intellectual, one of the few in Ireland these days. And he is still a fine writer. I read his latest book. It is fascinating and informative.
Waters writes in a painstaking style, concentrating on putting the truth out there rather than creating beautifully honed sentences like, say, John Banville. For that reason alone he's unlikely to be a bestseller, though his book sales are not helped by the inevitable specious badmouthing by the Irish Times people and the woke crowd, not to mention copious dirty tricks in bookshops.
