Ferdia Mac Anna

The Last of the Bald Heads is Ferdia Mac Anna's remembering of his remarkable youth - from the trials and tribulations of growing up in a bohemian household in Howth with a theatre director father and flamboyant, charismatic mother, through to his punk days in Dublin and stardom as Rocky De Valera - before finding love and having to face a brain haemorrhage and cancer. Using diaries from his time 'on-the-road' and many photographs, Ferdia interweaves his life story with individual vignettes that flash back and capture the most important moments and influences on his life.Told with the author's trademark wit and lightness of touch, The Last of the Bald Heads is the engrossing, enchanting account of an extraordinary life.
