The author, W.R. Le Fanu, younger brother of novelist Sheridan Le Fanu, wrote these reminiscences late in his life and it was his only published work.

Le Fanu covers a wide range of topics, from the more serious; political problems to the lighter topics of Irish peasant life, "fairies" and the Blarney Stone to name a few.
