Alternating between vignettes of John Banvilles own past and present-day historical explorations of the city Time Pieces is a vivid evocation of childhood and memory that bright abyss in which times alchemy works.
Encompassing stories of some of Ireland's best known characters as well as key moments in Ireland's past this pocket history recalls the country's struggles through dark times its successes its people and places.
Jonathan Bardon covers all the obvious things: the invasions battles development of towns and cities the Reformation the Georgian era the Famine rebellions and resistance the difference of Ulster partition the twentieth century.
Did an Irish monk discover America? Which rebel died of having a feckin' tooth pulled? And who in the name of Jaysus was responsible for the Pledge? If you've ever wondered how much of our rabble-rousing history is true and how much a load of wojus oul' bull then look no further.
