On an Irish Island

Robert Kanigel’s most recent book On an Irish Island was released on February 7, 2012.

 Called by Indie Bound “A love letter to a vanished way of life”, the book brings to life the people and language on the Great Blasket Island in Western Ireland just as their time there is ending.  The Barnes & Noble Review find that  “In passages that have a wonderful, ecstatic quality, Kanigel traces Thomson’s notion that Homer had come alive on Great Blasket.”
