DEAD-SHOT
This book is such an eye opening for me. I cannot imagine living under the expected behavior of the Irish women. She writes of it with humor and sadness. It is worth reading so we can understand how so much of the world was so hard on women.

While this book does not seem as unified as her first memoir, "Are You Somebody?", it takes the reader into her later life with the same directness and honesty she showed in that earlier text. An interesting read for anyone who has read the earlier book.

I do wish I had read her autobiography first. It was like coming into the third act of a play. But we'll written and thought provoking. I think she was a very talented writer and I wish she had written more.

Came on time, in perfect condition as described, enough time to wrap and send as a gift to a friend, to give her the pleasure of getting to know this amazing Irish writer.

Book was read for Book Club. It is very well written and showed me a side of Irish life that I wasn't familiar with. She had a difficult life that left her very negative about everything it seemed. I didn't particularly enjoy the read.

Dublin journalist Nuala O'Faolain thought she was writing the preface to a collection of her Irish Times columns when she produced Are You Somebody?, a memoir that was a bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic. One of nine children of a famous philandering father and a cold, disappointed and ultimately alcoholic mother, O'Faolain's memoir detailed her growing up in 1940s and 1950s Ireland, enduring a strict but narrow education by abusive nuns and a country smothered by an rigid patriarchy directed by the church. O'Faolain absorbed the ethos of her nation -- women must marry, have children and serve -- but managed to avoid actually fulfilling those expectations. Instead she became a university professor, a broadcaster for the BBC and RTE, and finally the most popular opinion columnist in the land. Almost There picks up the story, beginning with the success of her memoir and all that followed -- aclaim, wealth, more books -- and what didn't -- finding a loving partner to share that success. She hasn't overcome her anger at her parents, and as she moves into middle age struggles to find the key to contentment as a single woman. Her answer is friendship, travel, art, animals and the natural world. For readers who enjoyed Are You Somebody?, this memoir will be a worthwhile read. For those who missed the first installment, I suggest starting there.
