Brendan Behan

Born on 9 February 1923 Brendan Behan is best remembered for three things: his play The Quare Fellow (1954), his autobiographical novel Borstal Boy (1958) and his prodigous capacity for drink.  Behan died in the Cité de l’Ecrit in Montmorillon on 20 March 1964 after collapsing in the bar De la Trappe aux Livres.
