Description

Edna O'Brien was born in 1930. Her brilliant debut novel, The Country Girls, was banned in her native Ireland upon its publication in 1960. Since then she has gone on to produce some of the finest writing of the twentieth century. In Country Girl we hear of a life of high drama and contemplation, of encounters with Hollywood giants, pop stars and literary titans. It is a life gorgeously, sometimes painfully remembered, in prose that sparkles with the effortless gifts of a master.

Professional reviews

"‘Only Colette is her equal as a student of the ardours of an independent woman who is also on her own as a writer’ PHILIP ROTH ‘When an acclaimed writer and flamboyant character such as Edna O'Brien pens a memoir, we have the delicious prospect of reading the story of a life well lived, well told ... Country Girl is a terrific, gripping read.’ IRISH TIMES ‘Edna O'Brien is a bewitching and remarkable talent ... words, as she reveals in this exemplary memoir, have defined her entire life ... O'Brien's evocation of the Ireland of her childhood is, as might be expected, delicately excoriating and deftly comic …It is her pin-prick sharpness and the fact that she is always "drawn into the wild heart of things" that makes both her and this book so alluring.’ SUNDAY TIMES"
