Advance praise for NORA:

‘A lively and loving paean to the indomitable Nora Barnacle.’ Edna O’Brien

‘An exceptional novel by one of the most brilliant contemporary Irish writers, this is a story of love in all its many seasons, from ardent sexuality to companionable tenderness, through strength, challenge and courage.  Nuala O’Connor has brought to vivid life a woman about whom every literature lover has surely wondered and has done so with immense skill and daring. ‘ Joseph O’Connor, author of Star of the Sea and Shadowplay.
