From the Back Cover:

From the furthest rim of the Irish Diaspora, Thomas Keneally – Australian Booker Prize-winning author, of Irish descent – returns to his spiritual homeland.

The result is both an unforgettable journey rich in observation and insight, and a passionate exposition of his own deeply personal view of Ireland today: an attempt to unpack his ‘baggage of myths picked up from ancestors and others and match them against the ambiguous late twentieth-century reality’ . Between Cork, Ulster and Dublin, history reverberates and persists, and modern Ireland presents its ironies and contradictions.

'Now and in Time to Be' is a sometimes poetic, sometimes proud and always thoughtful evocation of Ireland in all its glory and complexity.

‘Thomas Keneally is a sensitive and agreeable companion’
VICTORIA GLENDINNING, 'Literary Review'

‘An enthusiastic account of an odyssey… Keneally is in love with the Irish Character’
JOHN ARDAGH, 'Daily Telegraph'

‘Tom Keneally has written a book full of delights for anyone who loves Ireland’
JUDITH WHITE, 'Sydney Morning Herald'
