I thought of the life of many generosity, of having known the ends of joy and sadness, of love, of the crossing of love and unshared love, of success and failure, of glory and slaughter, of having read in the newspapers that as a writer I had passed my expiration date, but no matter, to go on writing and reading, to be lucky enough to live in those two intensities that sustained all my lifeBorn in Ireland in the 1930s and forced into exile after the publication of his controversial first novel, The Land of the Girls, O’Brien created a body of work that bears comparison with the best writers of the twentieth centuryIn the young Daughter of the Country, we find ourselves face to face with the literary life of tragedy and contemplation.And along the way, there are encounters with Hollywood giants, titan pop and literary stars-all of whom lend this life, so beautifully, sometimes painfully reminded here, a terrible intensityIn prose that shines with the gift effort of a master in his ninth decade, Edna O’Brien changed her life with the imaginative insight of a poetIt’s a book of unfathomable depths and honesty
