Dan Kavanagh was born in County Sligo in 1946. Having
devoted his adolescence to truancy, venery and petty theft, he left
home at seventeen and signed on as a deckhand on a Liberian tanker.
After jumping ship at Montevideo, he roamed across the Americas taking
a variety of jobs: he was a steer-wrestler, a waiter-on-roller-skates
at a drive-in eatery in Tucson, and a bouncer in a gay bar in San
Francisco. He is currently working in London at jobs he declines to
specify, and lives in North Islington.
