WOMEN RULE WRITER: Lit blog of Nuala O'Connor / Nuala Ní Chonchúir
Great quote. I love "The Hares On Oyster Island". He has much the kindest face I've ever seen.
Me too, Rachel.And, yes, he has a wonderful face.I met him at the John McGahern School last year - we did a panel discussion together, just the two of us, on 'Amongst Women'. An interesting, deep, nice man.RTÉ did an Arts Lives docu on him recently - it's beautiful. It's on the RTE player but not sure if that will go to NZ(?) (We can't watch BBC progs here for example. Harumph.) Worth a try? It's called The Writing in the Sky. I took the quote from it.
Thanks, Nu - I'll have a try with the RTE now.
Hi Nuala.I watched "Writing in the Sky." The view of thousands of wild geese flying across the sky looking for all the world like the scratchings of a biro was magnificent. Fab quote from Dermot Healy.I've been reading and enjoying your blog for some time and only now have cranked up the gumption to comment!Mari G
Mari, welcome, lovely to meet you.I thought the documentary was lovely: gentle, beautifully shot, interesting.
