    Abstract

    This article explores the difficulties encountered by researchers as they embark on personal narrative study. It is based on research conducted with Irish gay men as they reflect on their lives, coming of age during the 1970s. Drawing on interview transcripts and the researcher’s journal, the article charts dilemmas of disclosure, rapport and the construction of the self in the narrative.
