  • Hollywood Irishby Adrian Frazier

    The Lilliput Press 2011; US$ 14.57

    'I have to say the book is an unalloyed pleasure to hold and to glance through -- a sensual delight. It is an absolute credit to everyone involved.

In... more...

  • Field of Bonesby Philip Orr

    The Lilliput Press 2011; US$ 14.57

    ‘Masterly and moving … Philip Orr enhances his already high reputation as a military historian for not only illuminating and meticulous command of detail but for a sense of balance and a fair-mindedness too rare in work on the long-neglected history of Irish soldiers in the First World War.

  • Nostosby John Moriarty

    The Lilliput Press 2011; US$ 14.57

    In this astonishing volume of autobiography, John Moriarty's earlier works of mystical philosophy, Dreamtime and Turtle Was Gone a Long Time, are given a biographical grounding.

  • Gander at the Gateby Rory O'Connor

    The Lilliput Press 2011; US$ 7.28

    "The poet W.B. Yeats desired to produce written work that, while it had been arduously crafted, would appear as immediate and spontaneous as the ordinary spoken words of people. It is a testament to the achievement of Rory O'Connor that he has accomplished just that by writing a memoir that connects closely to the oral tradition. ... It could be hoped,... more...
