Description

I Could Read The Sky tells of one man’s journey from the West of Ireland to the fields and boxing-booths and building sites of England. Now, at the century’s end, he finds himself alone, looking back, struggling to make sense of a life of unforgotten loveliness and loss. Exploring themes of love, dislocation and yearning, with stark, clear prose and stunning photographs, this novel explores the experience of Irish emigration as never before.
