Donleavy, J. P. (James Patrick), 1926–. The destinies of Darcy Dancer, gentleman, J. Donleavy.

Donleavy, J. Atlantic Monthly Press ed. Sequel: Leila. His sisters gone away to school in Dublin, Darcy Dancer was taught reading writing and arithmetic by Mr Arland, a tall, thin, grey suited gentleman who often said between his deep sniffs of snuff, that that was what he was, a gentleman. Who although disowned by his aristocratic father as a child borne by a serving girl, was educated at proper schools in England and later at Trinity College Dublin where he was a sizar and scholar.

JP Donleavy may well be the most hilarious writer on the planet. Darcy Dancer is a Bildungsroman about the coming of age of a young, educated member of the landed gentry in Ireland. He learns about love first- and second-hand through the auspices of a broad range of tutors including the brilliant Mr. Arland, a stablehand named Foxy, the sublime Miss Von B, the artist Clarissa, school chums, butlers and Rashers Ronald. Kildare wanders from one total fiasco of his own making to the next from the hunt and the stables to the mansions of the gentry and private schools and Dublin high society

Reginald Darcy Thormond Dancer Kildare, crossing the hall. A fire blazing in the hall grate. A tiny glow against the chill clammy damp. Darcy Dancer passing by the open door of the library alight inside with another candelabra. Stopping further down the hall. Crooks taking his hat and coat in hand. Darcy Dancer’s long hair pouring over his shirt collar. A yellow silk handkerchief stuck in the greeny brown tweed pocket of his jacket. To push open these large hinge squeaking double doors. The massive cold darkness of the ballroom. Two bats aloft darting back and forth.

It seems churlish not to give everything by Donleavy 5 stars but I just feel this later novel does not have the emotional intensity depth of feeling strength of character depiction or reach the marvellous comic heights of his best work. It has all the trademark ingredients, can be beautifully lyrical, fiendishly funny, and wildly inventive, and yet... At its best brilliant, when less good it feels like P.G.Wodehouse, with respect. The novel recounts the childhood and teenage years of the eponymous hero and this may have been the problem for me - I just could not warm to him as to Donleavy's grown male protagonists. And often found him priggish and irritating. The book remains typically Donleavy: the runaway horse scene is exhilarating and the triumphant final chapter made me punch the air, and of course there is so much more to make the reader rejoice. I have downloaded Darcy's further adventures in Leila which I look forwards to immensely... Even a lesser Donleavy will make life- and literature-affirming stars swirl about your mind... what matter how many??? Taken globally Donleavy is a 5-star comic writer... For his masterpiece the incomparable Ginger Man you would need stars as continuous as those which shine and twinkle on the Milky Way... The Milky Way, Ladies and Gentlemen, what a brilliant metaphor for the comic brilliance of J.P....

JP Donleavy may well be the most hilarious writer on the planet. Darcy Dancer is a Bildungsroman about the coming of age of a young, educated member of the landed gentry in Ireland. He learns about love first- and second-hand through the auspices of a broad range of tutors including the brilliant Mr. Arland, a stablehand named Foxy, the sublime Miss Von B, the artist Clarissa, school chums, butlers and Rashers Ronald. Kildare wanders from one total fiasco of his own making to the next from the hunt and the stables to the mansions of the gentry and private schools and Dublin high society. He always emerges through chance and pluck and the kindness of others none the worse for wear and perhaps slightly wiser. What are we to make of this dubious young "gentleman"? As Kildare correctly surmises: "Every madman thinks everyone else is mad." Donleavy writes with a unique pointillism, using words as brush strokes, that is engaging, endearing and even breathtaking as each chapter ends on a brief poetic note, a pithy line of stacked type. The dialogue is outrageously real and human and uproarious. The character development is precise and each character lives and breathes with a separate unique identity that only a supremely talented writer can render so credibly. Having read nearly all his novels, Darcy Dancer is his best: it's truly a well-written, literary comedy. Discover JP Donleavy -- possibly one of the most under-rated and gifted writers of our era. You'll laugh your head off.

This was the second Donleavy novel I read back in 1980. Since then I have read all of his novels and biographies. This book is also the reason that i stayed at the Shelbourne Hotel.
Full of gratuitous sex, violence drunken ribaldry, indeed it is almost a training manual for students.
It opens the door to positive thinking and instils in one that when things are really bad, they are not as bad as they are going to get, but never give up.
Learn negotiating skills, if a fist in the gob doesn't work, buy your man a drink.
Sex education, from aristocrats, whores, artists, teachers, plebean masses.
In all an excellent life changing book in which Donleavy displays true comic genius and has caused me hours of laughter.

One of his best adventures

A rollicking adventure spoiled only by an unconvincing conclusion.
