A pagan place
O'Brien, Edna, 1930-2016
Articles
This is Edna O'Brien's stunning novel about the uniquely wonderful, terrible, peculiar place she once called home. She writes not only of a life there - of a child becoming a woman - but of the Irish experience out of which that life arises. This is the Ireland of country villages and barley fields, of druids in the woods and of mischievous girls. Ireland has marked her life and work with unmistakable colour and depth, and here she recreates her homeland with a singular grace and intensity.
