In the summer of 2000 a young Irish journalist returned from New York to publish a magazine about life in boomtown Dublin. The Dubliner was an instant failure, and within a few months it was close to bankruptcy.

For the next seven years Trevor White struggled to keep the magazine afloat. Along the way he managed to alienate nearly everyone in Ireland. The Dubliner Diaries is an awkward history of the Celtic Tiger by a man who tried to capture it, and ended up being mauled. 

The author: Trevor White was born in Dublin in 1972. He was educated at Trinity College and worked as the editor of America's Elite 1000 before returning to Ireland to launch The Dubliner magazine in 2000. For several years he edited The Dubliner 100 Best Restaurants. He lives in Dublin. 

One of Ireland's most rude and intemperate journalists, Trevor White is the founding publisher of The Dubliner magazine and the author of two books, Kitchen Con: Writing on the Restaurant Racket, and The Dubliner Diaries, both of whice are out now.
