"You don't want the book to end- it glows with compassion and you want more, more because you know this is a fine wine of a life, richer as it ages."--Frank McCourt, author of "Angela's Ashes"

One of nine children born into a penniless North Dublin family, Nuala O'Faolain was saved from a harrowing childhood by her love of books and reading. Though she ultimately became one of Ireland's best-known columnists, her professional success did little to ease her loneliness and longing for a deep connection to the world. "Are You Somebody?" distills her experiences into a wisdom that can only come from an obstinate refusal to shrink from life.

This commemorative edition of her landmark memoir celebrates O'Faolain's remarkable life and work with a new foreword from Frank McCourt as well as additional archival materials. Strikingly vivid and starkly emotional, "Are You Somebody?" is, like O'Faolain herself, a singular example of courage, honesty, and bold living.

About Nuala O'Faolain

Nuala O'Faolain was a waitress, sales clerk, and maid- a university lecturer- a TV producer- and a columnist with "The Irish Times." The author of three consecutive "New York Times" bestsellers, her books include the memoir "Almost There," a follow-up to "Are You Somebody?," as well as two novels: "My Dream of You" and "The Story of Chicago May." She died in Dublin in 2008.
