Over the past 100 years, Ireland has undergone profound political, social, and cultural changes. But one thing that has not changed is the Irish genius for observation and storytelling, invective and self-scrutiny. Ireland: The Autobiography draws upon this genius to create a portrait of a century of Irish life through the words of the people who lived it. John Bowman has mined archives, diaries, and memoirs to create a varied and readable mosaic of voices and perspectives. It is a wide-ranging and engrossing take on the last century of Irish life. It gives us a portrait of Ireland unlike anything we've read before.
