What The Curlew Said

John Moriarty

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

This extra-ordinary work of autobiography concludes the story of John Moriarty's life in Connemara during the 1980s and the return to his native Kerry.

He relates the particularities of his time at Toombeloa, Roundstone and environs, where he worked restoring gardens and building his own house. He describes his adopted family and the children of the household, with sorties to Dublin for Christmas; his neighbourhood and community; the writer Tim Robinson; returned pine martens, the fish and flora of a historic landscape; a lecture tour in Canada, organized by his former students; his engagement with the immensities of the natural and spiritual worlds.

He calls to account the literatures and legacies of European thought made manifest in the western extremities of Ireland as they bear witness to his own inner and outer journey, now documented in this compelling and writerly masterwork.
