Ireland

by John Bowman | 04 May 2017
Paperback
Category: General Biography
Ireland in its own words: a dazzling compendium Over the past hundred years, Ireland has undergone profound political, social and cultural changes. But one thing that has not changed is the Irish genius for observation and storytelling, invective and self-scrutiny. Ireland: The Autobiography draws upon this genius to create a portrait of a century of Irish life through the words of the people who lived it. Broadcaster and historian John Bowman has mined archives, diaries and memoirs to create a remarkably varied and delightfully readable mosaic of voices and perspectives. Ireland: The Autobiography is a brilliantly selected, wide-ranging and engrossing take on the last century of Irish life. It gives us a portrait of Ireland unlike anything we've read before. 'Absorbing and illuminating ... John Bowman has selected a range of accounts of Irish life that do justice to what happened, what it felt like, and the personal and societal experiences alongside the "official" version.' Diarmaid Ferriter, Irish Times 'A treasure' Irish Examiner 'A whistle-stop tour of the seismic, seminal and explosive events which shaped the nation as we know it' Irish Independent 'Entertaining and informative' Sunday Business Post 'A remarkably varied and delightfully readable mosaic of voices and perspectives' Women's Way 'A thoughtful and eclectic collection' Irish Mail on Sunday
