Maureen O'Connor on Country Girl: A Memoir, by Edna O’Brien

Bodies, corporate and corporeal, have given Edna O’Brien trouble all her life. According toCountry Girl, a contributing factor in the disintegration of her marriage to Ernest Gébler was his obsessive and controlling attitude towards food: “a favourite book of his was The Culture of the Abdomen by Mr Hornibrook, from which he would read passages at random”. In a subtle moment of comic relief that briefly ventilates the increasingly airless domestic atmosphere she is describing, O’Brien quotes a passage from Hornibrook that includes this lurid, almost gothic warning: “And remember that all the time this lagging tenant of the bowel is retained the conditions favouring evil are at work: heat, moisture, nitrogenous refuse, darkness and micro-organisms.”

Andrew Philip reviews ‘Snow Falling on Chestnut Hill’ by John F. Deane — Magma Poetry

Andrew Philip reviews ‘Snow Falling on Chestnut Hill’ by John F. Deane — Magma Poetry | Ireland | Scoop.it

Snow Falling on Chestnut Hill presents poems from each of John F Deane’s previous five Carcanet collections alongside the substantial new title sequence. The opening piece, ‘In Dedication’, sets the tone with its affirming exploration of suffering, faith and endurance:

Curlews scatter now on a winter field, their calls
small alleluias of survival; I offer you
poems, here where there is suffering and joy,
evening, and morning, the first day.
