Níl aon amhras ach go bhfuil Pádraig Standún ar dhuine de na húrscéalaithe is fearr agus is bisiúla I nua-litríocht na Gaeilge. Ó thús na n-ochtóidí I leith tá súil ghrinn ghéar caite aige ar mhuintir na Gaeltachta agus na hÉireann. Sa leabhar seo, áfach, tugann sé faoi dhúshlán nua: stair agus seanchas an cheantair a bhfuil sé ina shéiplíneach ann ó 1995 a ríomh – Tuar Mhic Éadaigh. Gheofar trácht sa leabhar seo ar chúrsaí bíoblóireachta sa naoú haois déag, cur síos ar an saol a chaith na gnáthdhaoine sa seanreacht agus cuntas ar Chogadh na Saoirse sa cheantar, chomh maith le stair na bhfoirgneamh, na n-institiúidí agus na ndaoine atá ar marthain go fóill. Gheobhaidh muintir Thuar Mhic Éadaigh in Éirinn agus níos faide ó bhaile lón machnaimh agus cuimhne sa leabhar seo.

Pádraig Standún is widely considered as one of the most accomplished novelists in contemporary Irish-language literature. Since the beginning of the eighties he has closely examined both Irish people in general and Gaeltacht communities in particular. In his latest book he takes on a new challenge: the history and lore of the area where he has been stationed as a curate since 1995: Tourmakeady, Co. Mayo. Within this book are accounts of proselytism in the 19th century, accounts of the lives of the ordinary people in olden times and an account of the War of Independence in the area, as well as a history of the buildings, the institutions and the people that still call Tourmakeady home. Tourmakeady natives, both at home and abroad, will find plenty to think and reminisce about in this book
