One of nine children born into a penniless North Dublin family, Nuala O'Faolain was saved from a harrowing childhood by her love of books and reading. Though she ultimately became one of Ireland's best-known columnists, her professional success did little to ease her loneliness and longing for a deep connection to the world. Are You Somebody? distills her experiences into a wisdom that can come only from an obstinate refusal to shrink from life. This commemorative edition of her landmark memoir celebrates O'Faolain's remarkable life and work with a new foreword from Frank Mc Court, as well as her moving final interview. Strikingly vivid and starkly emotional, Are You Somebody? is, like O'Faolain herself, a singular example of courage, honesty, and bold living.
