“Writing himself into Irish history”

Conor Brady, for today’s Irish Times, reviews Tim Pat Coogan’s memoir…

“Editor of the Irish Press for almost two decades, author of a dozen books on Irish history and culture, Tim Pat Coogan’s many-stranded memoir is an instructive prism through which to view some aspects of the evolution of post-independence Ireland… It bespeaks love of country and love of life and it is punctuated with the sharp, dry humour that characterises the man.”
