Rathcormick : A Childhood Recalled, Paperback

Rathcormick : A Childhood Recalled Paperback


Set in 1950s rural Ireland, Rathcormick is an engaging tale of a large and happy family: a stern and domineering Papa, a warm and practical Mama, their two daughters and six sons.

For Homan, the youngest, life is a free-spirited awakening in a world of old-fashioned virtue and frugality.

But no boyhood lasts forever, and an abrupt turn of events signals an end to the idyll.

Rathcormick is an unforgettable memoir: funny, compelling and original.

With an introduction by William Trevor and drawings by Jeremy Wiliams.
