Handy Andy by Samuel Lover

"Handy Andy" is a humorous novel set in early 19th-century Ireland, which chronicles the misadventures of its well-meaning but bumbling protagonist, Andy Rooney. Despite his earnest attempts to do right, Andy's lack of common sense and knack for misunderstanding directions often result in chaos and comedy. Throughout the novel, his various jobs and escapades bring him into contact with a colorful cast of characters, from landlords and ladies to peasants and priests, painting a vivid picture of Irish rural life. Andy's endearing personality and the satirical portrayal of social issues of the time, such as class structure and national identity, provide both amusement and insight into the human condition.
