There is a sort of counter on the right with shelves, holding many bottles and jugs, just seen above it. Empty barrels stand near the counter. At back, a little to left of counter, there is a door into the open air, then, more to the left, there is Missing: Turf-fire tales. Of his books, they include fiction, autobiographical works, travelogues, political essays, and memoirs on prison life, the Romany people and tramping. Phelan's original studies of prison life are second to none, but as this site is not principally concerned with penology, it is Missing: Turf-fire tales.
