Book by Dervla Murphy
Die Inhaltsangabe kann sich auf eine andere Ausgabe dieses Titels beziehen.
In this beautifully written and searingly honest autobiography, the intrepid cyclist and traveler Dervla Murphy remembers her richly unconventional first thirty years. She describes her determined childhood self - strong-willed and beguiled by books from the first - her intermittent formal education and the intense relationship of an only child with her parents, particularly her invalid mother, whom she nursed until her death. Bicycling fifty miles in a day at the age of eleven, alone, it seems only natural that her first major journey should have been to cycle to India.Reseña del editor:
Dervla Murphy begins her autobiography in Lismore, Co Waterford. Her father was the county librarian and her mother a chronic invalid. She portrays the strain that her mother's increasing illness had on the family.
