Walled Gardens : Scenes from an Anglo-Irish Childhood, Paperback / softback Book

Walled Gardens : Scenes from an Anglo-Irish Childhood Paperback / softback


"Walled Gardens" is a brilliant portrait of the Anglo-Irish ascendancy, struggling through the post-war depression aided by drink, horse-racing and religion, and their own idiosyncratic adaptations to modern life.

Seen from the troubled perspective of the daughter of an aristocratic family in decline, we watch the disintegration of a marriage in elegant but emotionally chilled surroundings, and the struggle to keep up appearances, and a collapsing roof, in front of the neighbours.

By turns sad, absured and funny, the story is ultimately liberating as failure leads to freedom.
