RAYMOND PETRILLO I only recently became aware of this great man. I saw the film
but, would like to know out of all the books published about him
which one would you recommend as more or less a definitive
biography. I would appreciate any recommendation as you seem
to be a Collins buff. thanks, ray petrillo

Iosephvs Bibliothecarivs Hello Ray, I'm not sure if you were asking me or someone else, but I'll give my opinion. I prefer The Big Fellow: Michael Collins and the Irish Revolution because O'Connor was a storyteller. But, as I said in my review of that book, it's not exhaustive and doesn't cite sources. So if you're looking for a traditional, authoritative biography, I think most would agree that Coogan's Michael Collins: The Man Who Made Ireland fits the bill. Both books have been reprinted several times.
