An Afternoon with Frank McDonald – Truly Frank
15th December 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFREE
No Alibis bookstore invite you to a Book Launch with Frank McDonald to celebrate the publication of his memoir, “Truly Frank”
In his decades-long career at the Irish Times, author and journalist Frank McDonald became well-known and uniquely influential for his tireless devotion to Dublin’s built environment. He was, meanwhile, living a remarkably varied and interesting life. In Truly Frank, McDonald tells the stories behind his public advocacy for a more civilised city, and of his battles (and lunches) with politicians and developers. And he also reveals a more intimate story of growing up gay in Dublin at a time when homosexuality was entirely hidden and tainted with criminality. Passionate, indiscreet and seriously entertaining, Truly Frank is an instant classic of journalistic memoir
