About the Author

Walter Macken was born in Galway in 1915. He was a writer of short stories, novels and plays. Originally an actor, principally with the Taibhdhearc in Galway, and The Abbey Theatre, he played lead roles on Broadway in M. J. Molloy's The King of Friday's Men and his own play Home Is the Hero. He also acted in films, notably in Arthur Dreifuss' adaptation of Brendan Behan's The Quare Fellow. He is perhaps best known for his trilogy of Irish historical novels Seek the Fair Land, The Silent People and The Scorching Wind. He passed away in 1967. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars West of Ireland story 22 Aug 2007
By Wyvernfriend VINE VOICE
I come from Galway myself so this story touched a few heartstrings. Walter Macken is an author I would recommend for people wanting to read how Irish people spoke in the early 20th Century and in many places later.

This is the story of a young man who doesn't think about the consequences of his actions and what his negligence does to people around him. It's touching and sad and not a little heartbreaking. Macken realises his characters quite well and you not only dislike the main character but you also feel somewhat sad for him, because by not realising what his actions are doing he really isn't living life to the full.
