9781843516248: Romancing Ireland: Richard Hayward, 1892 - 1964

Richard Hayward was one of Ireland's best loved cultural figures from the mid-twentieth century. A popular singer and actor (The Luck of the Irish, 1939) , he also wrote travel books (In Praise of Ulster,1938), led groups on tours of Ireland, and was a theatrical impresario; in between times he was a salesman for Fox's Glacier Mints and a chocolate sweet company. A largely forgotten figure in the Irish cultural world, Hayward left behind a formidable body of work in books and recordings. He moved easily between parallel worlds of film making, the theatre, broadcasting and singing and writing, and his life touched many people. In this painstakingly researched account of an extraordinary life, Paul Clements has mastered a huge amount of material. The book covers all of his life, providing fresh insights through the lens of remarkable material from hitherto unknown archive resources, and a wealth of rare photographs. Paul Clements has scrutinised thousands of documents and literary fragments in archives throughout Ireland and Britain, producing a balanced reflection on Hayward's books, songs, films and ideas, which tell the extraordinary story of his four decades in the public spotlight. This absorbing and timely biography, commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of Hayward's death in 1964, draws on an array of primary sources, including previously unseen letters, and paints a refreshingly readable portrait of the man and his times. A landmark book, it is the first biography of a man who captured a changing Ireland and retrieves his legacy.

Review :

'A product of great industry and astuteness, a social history, and a worthwhile exercise in reinstatement ... it restores a measure of prominence to a long-neglected figure.' - Patricia Craig, Irish Times; 'Hayward was a pioneering figure and this is a vivid story of the man and his time.' - Michael Viney, Irish Times; 'A magnificently produced book about a life packed with fascinating stories.' - Sean O'Rourke, RTE Radio; 'A masterful biography which sheds new light on the cultural history of the early 20th century North.' - Eamon Phoenix, Irish News; 'A meticulously assembled and highly readable biography that resurrects a now obscure but still compelling figure.' - Andy Pollak, Dublin Review of Books; 'A treasure trove of information, superbly researched and packed with detail' - BBC Radio; 'A comprehensive biography in which the multifarious aspects of Hayward's colourful life are stitched together in one coherent narrative ... well served by Lilliput Press in an extensively illustrated tome.' - John Gray, Culture Northern Ireland; 'Romancing Ireland uncovers a man with limitless energy and passionate perceptions who captured a newly independent Ireland.' - Irish Arts Review; 'A book that will help restore the name of one of Ireland's best-loved cultural figures to its former glory.' - Impartial Reporter
