A book about one place that is also about the whole world' Robert Macfarlane, Guardian'Dazzling . . . an indubitable classic' Giles Foden, Conde Nast Traveller'One of contemporary Ireland's finest literary stylists' Joseph O'Connor, Guardian'Robinson is a stylist of exceptional cadence, tact and ingenuity . . . Reads like a light shone on his adopted home's distant past, and on the whole planet's future' Daily TelegraphReseña del editor:
The first volume of Tim Robinson's Connemara trilogy, Listening to the Wind, covered Robinson's home territory of Roundstone and environs. The Last Pool of Darkness moves into wilder territory: the fjords, cliffs, hills and islands of north-west Connemara, a place that Wittgenstein, who lived on his own in a cottage there for a time, called 'the last pool of darkness in Europe'. Again combining his polymathic knowledge of Connemara's natural history, human history, folklore and topography with his own unsurpassable artistry as a writer, Tim Robinson has produced another classic.
