Rural Ireland

by elpresidente on Mar 18, 2010

Good account of life in rural Ireland of the fifties.Beautiful descriptive passages typical of McGahern.This book originally published in Ireland by Faber and Faber under the title "That They May Face The Rising Sun". Great read if you can empathise with the mindsets of the characters.
