Book Description

15 Sep 2011 Modern Irish Classics
Orphaned at a young age, Cahal Kinsella returns from Dublin to the small farming village of Caherlo to his tyrannical grandfather, and must assert his individuality if he has any hope of freedom from his misery. Walter Macken paints a memorable portrait of the hard life of subsistence farming, of loveless arranged marriages, and of rebellion against suffocating social mores. Originally published in 1994, New Island's Modern Irish Classics series brings this book back to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bogman by Walter Macken 18 Sep 2012
By kathleen C. Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Truly a wonderful novel...the prose is lilting and evocative. Like many Irish stories, sadness always lurks behind the humor. This novel has a great storyline and is, unfortunately, a fast read. I wanted to keep reading !
