Walled Gardens: Scenes from an Irish Childhood
A new elegant trade paperback edition of Walled Gardens will
be available in the United States this June. The publishers are
Eland Press, and it will be distributed by Dufour.
Walled Gardens—Scenes from an Anglo-Irish
Childhood is both a family memoir and an account
of life in Southern Ireland by a member of the first generation
born since Irish independence. It has been praised by William
Trevor (“beautifully written, marvelously remembered”),
and by Molly Keane, Isabel Colegate and John Keegan.
Walled Gardens was originally
published by Knopf in 1989. Although this is the first paperback
edition available in America, the book has been continuously in
print since publication.
