    Peter Arthurs was close to Behan and wrote an account (With Brendan Behan, St, Martin's Press, - ISBN ) which claims that Behan was not only gay but a pedophile. I don't see any reason why Arthurs would lie, but I'm not a Behan scholar (& a Wikipedia noob) so I'll keep it out of the article for now. (talk) The Quare Fellow

Brendan Behan’s most popular book is Borstal Boy. This book offers a major reassessment of the work of Brendan Behan (–64), author of The Quare Fellow, The Hostage and Borstal Boy.

It charts Behan’s intellectual journey from his early imitations of Republican verse and song to his formulation of a literature which could articulate a thoroughly postcolonial, critical nationalism.

His best-known works are his plays The Quare Fellow and The Hostage, comedy-dramas that deal with the subjects Behan knew best-Dublin and the IRA. Behan also wrote Brendan Behan's Ireland: An Irish. "An Anglo-Irishman only works at riding horses, drinking whisky and reading double-meaning books in Irish at Trinity College," Behan once wrote.

The Hostage was Behan's last major drama - his last books were compilations of anecdotes transcribed from tape recordings.

Like Dylan Thomas, he was lionized to death in the United States. Behan’s last works, which he dictated on tape, were Brendan Behan’s Island (), a book of Irish anecdotes; The Scarperer (), a novel about a smuggling adventure, first published serially in the Irish Press; Brendan Behan’s New York (); and Confessions of an Irish Rebel (), further memoirs.
