i have waited eagerly for this book to be published, I consider Edna o'brien to be an exemplary writer who is responsible for my love of literature. she tells her story, of her life, with honesty and vividness and to read it has been a joy. She writes with such depth and from the soul. you follow her through chapters of her school days, home life, first feelings of love and can see how through observations of others and of nature, how her descriptions come alive. I think Edna lives in the present, in the true sense of the word, not many people observe to the degree of awakening the senses. She remains true to herself and a gift to the reader.
