Tressell and the Late Kathleen

A Biographical Memoir and a Message of Hope


A rare book which provides insight about Tressell from a biographical point of view.
Explores issues surrounding mental health– examines the applications of Tressillian theory. 
A man known for his humanity, this honest account seeks to dispel the propaganda.

There are many stories surrounding Robert Tressell, the Irish writer best known for his novel, The Ragged-Trousered Philanthropists, which captured the minds of thousands.

A man surrounded by political propaganda and rumours, this memoir seeks to dispel the fabrications and get to the truth about Tressell, who was a man actually known for his humanity. The book also touches upon Tressell’s daughter, Kathleen, a remarkable lady who turned up after being ‘dead’ for so many years. It reveals more about her life, even exploring her interest in psychoanalysis.

Amusing and at times tragic, this personal biographical memoir dissolves the myths surrounding this legend, and by understanding his real-life, it is a much better way of understanding his thought and how his ideas can be developed for the modern age.
