Well written. An interesting portrait of her life and times in the sixties and beyond.

"The world with all its sins and guile and blandishments was beckoning."
Irish writer Edna O'Brien's debut novel "Country Girls" shocked her hometown and the parish priest burned a copy. O'Brien's memoir discusses her childhood in Ireland, her literary career, her struggles (church, family, country), and her life in London, where she has lived for many years. Clear eyed, observant, and witty, this is a fine memoir by a writer whom Philip Roth has compared to Colette.

A memoir by a remarkable woman. The first half is better than the second half, but all is worth reading.
