Product Description

Biographical vignettes are the skeleton upon which McCourt weaves his history of Ireland. Broken down into 16 sections, he uses famous Irish men and women to define each epoch, including Patrick, Brigid, Columcille and others; short and colloquial, each provides biographical as well as historical background from early legend through Bono. Instantly accessible with all the sense of a storyteller's recitation, this is a unique lens through which to view Ireland's long history. 400 pages, paperback.

Publisher's Description

New York Times bestselling author Malachy McCourt offers an authoritative and engrossing one-volume chronicle of Ireland from pre-Christian times to the present, told with Irish flair by the gifted storyteller.

The pages are populated with figures from myth, history, and the present-from Saint Patrick to Oliver Cromwell, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, and Charles Parnell to Sinead O'Connor and Bono. Some beloved, some controversial-each influenced the course of Irish and world history. While McCourt vividly describes Ireland's turbulent history, he also offers a cultural survey with fresh insights to the folklore, literature, art, music, and cuisine of Ireland, producing an irresistible tour through the Emerald Isle.
