Frank Browning reports on a new novel by Irish writer Jamie O'Neill. At Swim, Two Boys is the author's third novel, but when it was published in Britain, many critics likened O'Neill to Joyce for making such a remarkable debut. The book tells the story of a friendship between two young men set against the Easter Uprising of 1916.
