4.0 out of 5 stars More of O Brien's life fictionalised
the usual Edna O'Brien story of her Western Ireland beginnings, this time focussing on her mother's story but including some familiar autobiographical details from her own life. The first of her novels was funny and sad, the second one was depressing, and the third the same. This one isn't any different, but the incidents are entertaining, and well told, and you either...

2.0 out of 5 stars A frustrating reaad
The language is poetic and some of the images compelling. However, the book flits about rather confusingly from person to person and from viewpoint to viewpoint and I did not find the characters real or believable.

This one isn't any different, but the incidents are entertaining, and well told, and you either like her stuff or you don't.
Looking forward to her coming memoir in paperback so I can maybe separate the fact from the fiction, trusting her honesty.
