A phase of ordinary Ireland remembered 16 Dec. 2013
By Marco Buendia - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a realistic memoir by a member of the upper strata of metropolitan Dublin. It's plainly, honestly and engagingly written and is likely to appeal to those who enjoy all things Irish. There's nothing particularly unusual about it, but for that very reason it's edifying for those interested in modern Ireland before the boom (now bust). The author still lived in Ireland when this book was published (thought she has some considerable experience of the larger world) and is by her nature free of sentimentality. She is acutely sensitive to what are now called gender issues and this in itself produces a sort of acid test to her particular Irishness.

Not as dark as McCourt, perhaps, but not the Emerald Turf with leprechauns popping up and grinning over every rock and turf wall.
