Donkey’s Years is the first volume of memoirs of one of Ireland’s greatest writers.
Aidian Higgins lays bare his account of his early years growing up in Co. Kildare until the time of his family's eventual economic decline. In doing so, he reveals the inspiration behind many of his best novels, including his masterpiece, Langrishe, Go Down. Donkey's Years serves as a literary and sensuous rendering of one man's life and the forces that compelled him towards a life of letters.
