9780099461791: Rathcormick: A Childhood Recalled

Set in 1950s rural Ireland, Rathcormick is an engaging tale of a large and happy family: a stern and domineering Papa, a warm and practical Mama, their two daughters and six sons. For Homan, the youngest, life is a free-spirited awakening in a world of old-fashioned virtue and frugality. But no boyhood lasts forever, and an abrupt turn of events signals an end to the idyll.

Rathcormick is an unforgettable memoir: funny, compelling and original.

With an introduction by William Trevor and drawings by Jeremy Wiliams.

Review:

"Moving, funny and bleak by turns, there is nothing sentimental about it" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Not a wet miserable childhood, à la Frank McCourt, but a Protestant childhood and one that makes for hugely enjoyable reading" ( Independent on Sunday)

"An evocative account of Protestant life in mid-century Ireland...ornamented with charming line drawings by Jeremy Williams" ( Irish Independent)

"The twenty-six chapters are beautifully crafted-lively, elegant... A classic memoir" ( Irish Times)

" Rathcormick is an intriguing insight into the [Protestant] class, its mores, its thrifty values. Homan Potterton has dipped into the vintage, sipped some, and gently offers us a taste" ( Sunday Tribune)

From the Author:

Light-hearted memoir of a Protestant childhood in Southern Ireland during the 1950s. Witty drawings throughout by Jeremy Williams.
