Asking For Trouble

Asking For Trouble
Patricia Craig was expelled from her convent school in Belfast in 1959. This was not a time when pupils from respectable families were expelled, and certainly not for 'carrying-on' with the local boys on a school-organised Irish-language course. This book is the story of the events surrounding her expulsion and its far-reaching consequences.

'This is the story of an escapade with disproportionate consequences. When I was sixteen I was expelled from school. So what, you may say: so were lots of people who never took it into their heads to make a song and dance about it. True - but I hope to show that this particular, infinitesimal injustice had implications beyond the purely personal.' Patricia Craig was expelled from her convent school in Belfast in 1959. This was not a time when pupils from respectable families were expelled, and certainly not for 'carrying-on' with the local boys in the Donegal Gaeltacht on a school-organised Irish-language course. Now an eminent writer and critic, Patricia Craig's absorbing coming-of-age memoir tells the story of the events surrounding her expulsion and its far-reaching consequences. "Asking for Trouble" is a wry and fascinating account of religious identities, family relationships and growing up set against the vivid backdrop of 1950s Belfast and Donegal.
