Out of stock

A More Complex Truth is a timely selection of Nuala O’Faolain’s non-fiction from the mid-1980s to shortly before her death in 2008. Hailed as ‘one of the greatest columnists ever to inhabit the English language’, her wide-ranging essays cast a canny eye on all matters Irish – from sex, contraception, old age, the Border, and the rights of the marginalised, to Charlie Haughey, Mary Robinson, John McGahern and U2. Gifted with a unique capacity to look at issues from all sides, her cutting-edge commentary – whether on our latter-day materialism or the duties of citizenship – remains as topical today as when first penned.
