About The Book
Written with the art of a skilled fiction writer whose ear for Irish bluster is pitch-perfect, Whoredom in Kimmage tells the tale of contemporary Irish women through a series of brilliantly animated scenes that take the reader from Dillon’s tiny pub in rural Corofin to the heart of Dublin. This beguiling account of Irish life transcends that nation’s small shores through the power of Mahoney’s great storytelling gifts.
Before the phenomena of Frank McCourt’s Angela’s Ashes, and Thomas Cahill’s How the Irish Saved Civilization, Rosemary Mahoney traveled to Ireland in response to the growing feeling that changes were taking place, and that those changes directly involved women. Her ideas are animated in brilliantly crafted scenes, taking the reader from Dillon’s tiny pub in Corofin to a lesbian pub in Dublin, from a Legion of Mary meeting to a classroom full of boisterous schoolgirls determined to drive their teacher, S’ta Keatin’, over the edge. Here, too, are scenes with Ireland’s first woman president, Mary Robinson, and the country’s preeminent woman poet, Eavan Boland. But most memorable, and perhaps most prescient of the recent enchantment with literature about the Emerald Isle, are Mahoney’s pitch-perfect ear for Irish bluster and warmth, her eye for detail, and people so real and unforgettable you’d think they were having a cup of tea with you.
