Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Mad, Bad, Dangerous to Know, written and read by Colm Tóibín.

'A father...is a necessary evil.' (Stephen Dedalus in Ulysses)

In Mad, Bad, Dangerous to Know, Colm Tóibín turns his incisive gaze to three of Ireland's greatest writers, Oscar Wilde, W. B. Yeats and James Joyce, and their earliest influences: their fathers. From Wilde's doctor father, a brilliant statistician and amateur archaeologist, who was taken to court by an obsessed lover in a strange premonition of what would happen to his son; to Yeats' father, an impoverished artist and brilliant letter writer who could never finish a painting; to John Stanislus Joyce, a singer, drinker and storyteller, a man unwilling to provide for his large family, whom his son James memorialised in his work. 

Colm Tóibín illuminates not only the complex relationships between three of the greatest writers in the English language and their fathers but also illustrates the surprising ways they surface in their work.
