Hidden CityZens easily overlook Whitney haunts Dublin's edgelands underground rivers and sewers ghost estates and dark corners Whether he is visiting each of the twenty addresses at which James Joyce lived. Something of a curate's egg A book that I don't feel delivers on its impression of being the hidden Dublin It is excellent and excoriating when writing about the corruption of Fianna Fail or the victims of the housing boom However it is also full of chapters about playing a game with a bus ticket or going down the sewers that just seemed needlessly whimsical
