Bat the Father and Rabbit the Son

By Donal O'Kelly

1988, 1989, 1990, and 1992

Rabbit is a self-made haulage magnate. He is obsessed with memories. He undertakes a voyage to rediscover what he feels he has lost. His father Bat, former Easter Rising rebel and pawn shop assistant, plays an increasing role in the voyage as Rabbit delves deeper into his heart, into history, into Dublin, seeking his lost moorings.
