About this item
"You dont want the book to end; it glows with compassion and you want more, more because you know this is a fine wine of a life, richer as it ages". Frank McCourt, author of Angelas Ashes
One of nine children born into a penniless North Dublin family, Nuala OFaolain was saved from a harrowing childhood by her love of books and reading. Though she ultimately became one of Irelands best-known columnists, her professional success did little to ease her loneliness and longing for a deep connection to the world. Are You Somebody? distills her experiences into a wisdom that can only come from an obstinate refusal to shrink from life.
This commemorative edition of her landmark memoir celebrates OFaolains remarkable life and work with a new foreword from Frank McCourt as well as additional archival materials. Strikingly vivid and starkly emotional, Are You Somebody? is, like OFaolain herself, a singular example of courage, honesty, and bold living.
