Praise for "Stepping Stones"""
“This really is a remarkable book. There isn’t a dull, vapid or useless sentence in it; it’s about what it is to be human, as much as it is about what it is to be a poet.” —Nicholas Lezard, "The Guardian"
“["Stepping Stones"] is a Heaney word horde that will not be surpassed for some time . . . [It] will be seized on by students of the work as well as the common reader . . . [Heaney] is intensely present within these pages—still surprising, still defying ‘the merciless landscapes’ with generosity, courage and joy.” —Bel Mooney, "The Times "(London)
“[An] important book-length interview, designed to serve in lieu of a memoir . . . Dennis O’Driscoll [is] an excellent poet and critic, and a deeply informed and probing interviewer of his longtime friend.” —Adam Kirsch, "The New Republic"
“"Stepping Stones "succeeds on many levels, and O’Driscoll
Stepping Stones: Interviews with Seamus Heaney, edited by Dennis O'Driscoll, is a unique insight into the life and mind of the Nobel Prize-winning Irish poet.
