Jim McKeon puts on record a fascinating narrative of his life experiences. He includes stories about beginning to write plays at a very young age, developing as a creative writer, and writing the biography of Frank O’Connor in later years. His passion for singing and performing is also recorded, and he relates many anecdotes about the characters of the city. His love for cinema is discussed, as is his ability to lead a frugal life made necessary due to great lack of financial resources during the sixties and seventies.
