Quick overview “Phyl Herbert has written her own story with remarkable courage. She bears witness to sexual hypocrisy validated by the repressive mores and dictates of church and government. Yet her story is ultimately one of hope and survival. And love. It is written in elegant simple prose that will haunt you long after you’ve turned its final powerful pages.” — Gabriel Byrne, actor and director
€17.50

“An utterly enthralling memoir. An eventful childhood, full of joy and trauma, is followed by the life of adventure in the world of literature. Mary Rose Callaghan blends her personal story with the story of her time seamlessly. Her sure-footed artistry, her complete lack of pretension, and wry sense of humour which make this book a delight to read. Just wonderful!”—Eilís Ní Dhuibhne, novelist
