To all my Irish friends!
Back in 2000, my friend L and I walked everyday and we shared the love of reading. She lent me Angela’s Ashes and ‘Tis by Frank McCourt and I lent her Are You Somebody? and My Dream of You (a novel) by Nuala O’Faolain. Both are Irish memoirists and incredible writers. I love Nuala for her prose and feminine view. If you get a chance, read her. I pulled both her books back off the shelf to re-read. She has since published other books (one or two posthumously) and a sequel memoir, but I think I should begin again, here.
There’s a richness in Irish literature as lavish as the emerald countryside!
