  • Donkey's Years by Aidan Higgins

€14.99

Donkey’s Years is the first volume of memoirs from one of Ireland’s greatest writers, Aidan Higgins. Displaying the wit, sensuality and highly personal style that makes him such a distinct and classic wordsmith, Higgins lays bare his account of his early years growing up Co. Kildare until the time of his family’s eventual economic decline.

Donkey’s Years serves as a literary and sensuous rendering of one man’s life and the forces that compelled him towards a life of letters.

Reviews:

‘Higgin’s portrait of himself and of his people, embedded in the boggy terrain of history, class, and collective memory, is one of the finest in literature’ – Boston Globe

‘Leaving down Donkey’s Years at four in the morning after one straight reading I felt exhilarated…Read it and see. Few books inspire like this’ – Dermot Healy

‘A wondrously evocative masterpiece…a curmudgeonly, lachrymal, comic Hibernian delight’ – Spectator
