Reseña del editor:

Into a very volatile Ireland, Terry de Valera was born in June 1922. In this memoir he recounts events in his life and that of his family against the ongoing changing political landscape of the Civil War, the threat of World War II, the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 1916 Rising, his father's presidency, the ultimate demise of his very famous parents, Eamon and Sinead de Valera, and the growth of his own family, including of course his daughter Sile, who is also a TD and minister.
In addition to matters political, there is also much which will appeal to those interested in music and the arts. A recognised expert on Chopin and John Field, Terry de Valera's enthusiasm in describing these men and their work is infectious. So too, his reminiscences on various Irish artists.
This is at once a very personal memoir, but is guaranteed to be of interest to anyone keen to learn more about one of Ireland's foremost political families, from the inside.

Reseña del editor:

My mother told me that when I was but a few weeks old she said to my father "I think that there is going to be a wave in Terry's hair" and when he showed no interest, she rebuked him. She again tried to attract his attention and as she did he replied "How can I mind about the wave in Terry's hair when they are fighting in the Four Courts?" Into a very volatile Ireland, Terry de Valera was born in June 1922. In this memoir he recounts events in his life and that of his family against the ongoing changing political landscape of the Civil War, the threat of World War II, the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 1916 Rising, the ultimate demise of his very famous parents, Eamon and Sinead de Valera, and the growth of his own family, including of course his daughter Sile, who is also a TD and minister. Terry draws too on his mother's memories, which he asked her to commit to paper, to provide a fascinating pen picture of Ireland in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In addition to matters political, there is also much which will appeal to those interested in music and the arts. A recognised expert on Chopin and John Field, Terry de Valera's enthusiasm in describing these men and their work is infectious. So too, his reminiscences on various Irish artists. This is at once a very personal memoir, but is guaranteed to be of interest to anyone keen to learn more about one of Ireland's foremost political families, from the inside.
