A man of immense grace, dignity. And a wicked humour too.


  1. The only book of his that our library mentions owning is By the Lake, and even then I'll have to order it from another branch. Thank God for interlibrary loans… I'll look for his work. I'd never heard of him.

  2. I read Amongst Women last year. It's great. There's even a bit in Strandhill! And a few months ago I nabbed The Dark from home. Settled down in bed to start it and in the first few pages, a boy is sexually abused by his dad. 'Nuff of that at work. Haven't gone back to it since!
    The man himself launched the aunt's last book – he had Kavanagh connections of some kind. Would love to read his Memoirs though.
