KIRKUS REVIEW

A memory-misted recollection of childhood in Ireland recaptures a special world and way of life. In the ""homely comfort"" of a thatched farmhouse John O'Donoghue grew up as one of many children. There were the rude changes of school -- the sorrow and excitement of his grandmother's death -- the hours spent farming, the yearly visit of the priest, and the occasional tramps and tinkers who passed their way. An ingenuous record remembered with particular charm.
