¶ White's account of life on the west coast of Ireland. The author comments on the front flap: "God knows what this book is about. I suppose it's a bit of autobiography really. But it's about living on the West Coast of Ireland, in 'the parish nearest to America' -- they all are, I mean the parishes -- and it is about the people and things there, more than about me."
