Uimhir a Cúig | In My Own Light --- A Memoir: Extract and Interview with Raymond Deane --- Siobhán Cleary | Numéro Cinq
Bob Quinn, the Irish filmmaker, writer and photographer describes Raymond Deane's memoir In My Own Light as “a superb and shocking memoir. Elegant prose first lulls us into complacency with a rich, obsessively detailed, account of an Irish childhood. Cleverly, inexorably and despite a warning prologue, we are drawn into a subsequent nightmare recalled dispassionately. The book leaves one with a feeling of relief, even joy.”
