Editorial Reviews

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.
The Irish Times
Should stand on the shelf beside Synge's Aran Islands and Thoreau's Walden.
