'A powerful and evocacative work infused with great craft and courage' - Irish Book Review
'MacKenna is MacGahern's inheritor; he harvests and hoards his words, knowing their nuance, their gram-weight worth'
- Scotland on Sunday
From one of Ireland’s finest writers comes Things You Should Know: A Memoir – a book about growing up and growing old, about freedom and responsibility, about being a father and a son at the same time.
Praise for John MacKenna:
‘His stories are imbued with an intense eroticism which sharpens the character’s memories and softens the harsh Irish landscapes in which they live’ – The Sunday Times
‘A writer whose emotional success rarely falters’ – The Irish Times
‘A consummately skilled author’ – The Guardian
‘His restrained, limpid style and rural settings are reminiscent of McGahern’ – The Irish Times
