'Puckoon' was former Goon Spike Milligan's only major fictional work. Published in 1963, it tells the hilarious tale of life in a partitioned Irish parish in the 1920s, with the village in the Irish Free State and the church in Northern Ireland, which made funeral processions a bit awkward. There is also the unforgettable tale about the local branch line train running out of coal........
