Writer Mary O'Donnell has given The Closet of Savage Mementos a beautifully written and considerate review on her blog Medea999. A taster: '[Ní Chonchúir] belongs to the pitiably small breed of female authors who do not prettify sexuality or physicality, and whose characters are fleshly, sensuous creatures as at ease with the rhythms of their bodies as they are with the rhythms of their minds. That’s one thing. The other thing is that she tells good stories, whether writing short fiction or long. '
Mary's fourth novel Where They Lie, will be launched at Listowel Writers' Week on Thursday May 29th at 4pm in Listowel Library. And I'll be there - yay!
