The Quiet Place Book Club: A Ghost in the Throat by Doireann Ní Ghríofa

Thursday 25 February 2021, 8.00PM

Join us as we discuss Doireann Ní Ghríofa’s prose debut A Ghost in the Throatwhich centres on the author’s discovery of and subsequent obsession with Eibhlín Dubh Ní Chonaill’s eighteenth-century verse “Caodineadh Airt Uí Laoghaire” (“The Keen for Art Ó Laoghaire”). Cleaving together essayistic and epistolary qualities with the intense research that Ní Ghríofa undertook on Ní Chonaill as one of the last noblewomen in the old Irish Order, this is an intensely affective and intertextual tale - “a female text” that interrogates motherhood, grief and marginalised histories. 
You can purchase A Ghost in the Throat (Tramp Press, 2020) from Fox Lane Books. The university library also holds an electronic copy of A Ghost in the Throat
