A valuable insight into the work and life of John Hewitt, his achievements and legacy.

A North Light is John Hewitt's own account of his life in Northern Ireland from his early years until his 'enforced exile' in Coventry in 1957. It provides a fascinating glimpse into his association with key figures from the art and literary world, including W.B. Yeats, George Orwell, Brendan Behan, John Luke, amongst others. The book covers his career in the Belfast Museum and Art Gallery; the evolution of his critical and literary thinking; his maverick political views on his homeland. This is one of the most anticipated Irish memoirs of the twentieth century.
