"You don't want the book to end; it glows with compassion and you want more, more because you know this is a fine wine of a life, richer as it ages."Frank McCourt, author ofAngela's AshesOne of nine children born into a penniless North Dublin family, Nuala O'Faolain was saved from a harrowing childhood by her love of books and reading. Though she ultimately became one of Ireland's best-known columnists, her professional success did little to ease her loneliness and longing for a deep connection to the world.Are You Somebody?distills her experiences into a wisdom that can only come from an obstinate refusal to shrink from life.This commemorative edition of her landmark memoir celebrates O'Faolain's remarkable life and work with a new foreword from Frank McCourt as well as additional archival materials. Strikingly vivid and starkly emotional,Are You Somebody?is, like O'Faolain herself, a singular example of courage, honesty, and bold living.
