It’s a life story; it’s a love story; it’s a
 lust story;
 it's funny;
it’s sad; it’s whimsical; it's profane and...it’s
profound.
Bartholomew “Bat” Lynch is an Irish immigrant who comes to America with his older sister, Mary, during Prohi- bition. Bat is a rover, a philosopher and, in many ways, a child who never grows up. He’s witty, light-hearted, quick to tell a joke and even quicker to have a drink or two. During his lifetime, he works at numerous jobs, al- though most are short-lived. But, nevertheless, he has memorable experiences at each.          An immensely likable fellow, Bat is blessed with good luck and has an uncanny knack for landing on his feet. But his real good fortune in life is Eileen, his wife, who stands by him through it all, loving, unfaltering and steadfast.          Bad blood exists between Bat and Eileen’s brother, Jerry, who also becomes his brother-in-law when he weds Bat’s sister. Over the years Bat keeps the dark secret he knows about Jerry to himself, and Jerry’s hatred for Bat continues to fester. It all comes to a head during Bat’s Irish home wake when divine retribution plays a hand in evening up the score.        This tome contains anecdotes that will make you laugh out loud along with heart-wrenching passages that will evoke tears. It has innocence and intrigue, guile and goodness, decency and deception, mirth and mortality.          Bat Lynch – like the fabled unicorn – is a most unique and unforgettable character that you’ll be thinking about long after you read the last page.
