Overview

In 1999, Tim Robinson established himself as one of Ireland's most brilliant nonfiction writers with the two-volume Stones of Aran, a tribute to the unspoiled wild of Ireland's Aran Islands. With Connemara, he creates an indelible portrait of a small corner of the world. From the unmarked graves of unbaptized infants to the shimmering peaks of the Twelve Pins, Robinson brings his close attention and dazzling prose to describe the mountains, bogs, shorelines, and landscape of his home and, at the same time, make a great statement about the world at large.

Editorial Reviews

The Irish Times
Should stand on the shelf beside Synge's Aran Islands and Thoreau's Walden.
Conde Nast Traveller
Dazzling . . . an indubitable classic.
The Guardian (London)
One of contemporary Ireland's finest literary stylists . . . this book does justice, in every sense of the phrase, to the frequently betrayed people whose stories it incarnates, and to their strange and beautiful corner of the world.
