9780618126903: A Pagan Place

A PAGAN PLACE is Edna O'Brien's true novel of Ireland. Here she returns to that uniquely wonderful, terrible, peculiar place she once called home and writes not only of a life there--of the child becoming a woman--but of the Irish experience out of which that life arises--perhaps more pointedly than in any of her other works. This is the Ireland of country villages and barley fields, of druids in the woods, of unknown babies in the womb, of mischievous girls and Tans with guns. Ireland has marked Edna O'Brien's life and work with unmistakable color and depth, and here she recreates her homeland with a singular grace and intensity.

From the Back Cover:

"Edna O'Brien is one of our bravest and best novelists." --Irish Times

"The artfully artless manner of the telling, the pared-to-the-bone prose, and richly comic overtones generate the novel's particular illumination, and it's of a high intensity...To my mind this is O'Brien's finest book." –Patricia MacManus, Saturday Review

"O'Brien brings together the earthy and the delicately poetic: she has the soul of Molly Brown and the skills of Virginia Woolf. --Newsweek
