Some Lessons in Gaelic,
This review is from: Some Lessons in Gaelic (Paperback)
This deep and moving novel has the ability to make the reader laugh out loud at times and then near to tears at others as you make the journey through pubescent adolescence with the central character.
To truly appreciate the humour and fully understand the dogma of Catholicism it would be beneficial for the reader if they understood Ireland and the Irish in the era in which the story is written, but irregardless of these two advantages "Some Lessons in Gaelic" is well worth reading for the sheer beauty of literature written as it should be.
McCawley Grange is a remarkable writer which in these modern times makes such a refreshing change.
