Review:
Are You Somebody is an extraordinary, powerful memoir. It is beautifully written, with an honesty that is both sensitive and stark. --Roddy Doyle

A remarkable memoir, poignant, truthful, and imparting that quiet wisdom which suffering brings. --Edna O'Brien

An astonishing book ... a classic of Irish autobiography. --Colm Tóibín, TLS
From the Publisher:
Book Information and Reviews
"...O'Faolain writes well, often beautifully, and her candor and honesty and ultimately her compassion, set this memoir well apart" --The Washington Post

"When you read Nuala O'Faolain's "Are You Somebody," you'll wish Ireland was giving out some kind of a Booker or Pulitzer prize. . . . You don't want the book to end." --Frank McCourt, author of "Angela's Ashes"

Are You Somebody is a moving and fascinating portrait of both Ireland and one of its most popular and respected commentators. This gem of honesty and insight had its first life as the introduction to a collection of Nuala O'Faolain's Irish Times columns that became a number-one bestseller in Ireland. It now stands alone. Ireland has fallen in love with this memoir of an Irish woman of letters, and now this country will too.

"Likely to become a classic of Irish autobiography." --Colm Tóibín, Times Literary Supplement

""Are You Somebody" is an extraordinary, powerful memoir. It is beautifully written, with an honesty that is both sensitive and stark." --Roddy Doyle

"A remarkable memoir, poignant, truthful, and imparting that quiet wisdom which suffering brings." --Edna O'Brien

Nuala O'Faolain has been a writer, a university professor, a television producer, and, most recently, a columnist for the Irish Times. She lives in Dublin.
