Country Girl, a memoir

By Edna O’Brien, 2012
Born in Ireland in 1930 and driven into exile after publication of her controversial first novel, "The Country Girls", O'Brien has created a body of work which bears comparison with the very best writers of the twentieth century.

Ostracized by the patriarchal establishment in Ireland for harnessing the power of the female word and daring to challenge the mores of the time, "Country Girl” is a memoir of O’Brien’s life experience, not to be missed.
