September Book Club - A GHOST IN THE THROAT

Join our Book Club! Our adult book buyer Lori Feathers facilitates an interesting and lively discussion about a fiction or non-fiction title each month. Come and share your opinions about the book and glean a deeper or different understanding of it from other readers. The selection for September is A GHOST IN THE THROAT by Doireann Ní Ghríofa. We look forward to seeing you there - all are welcome!


In the eighteenth century, on discovering her husband has been murdered, an Irish noblewoman drinks handfuls of his blood and composes an extraordinary lament that reaches across centuries to the young Doireann Ní Ghríofa, whose fascination with it is later rekindled when she narrowly avoids fatal tragedy in her own life and becomes obsessed with learning everything she can about the poem Peter Levi has famously called “the greatest poem written in either Ireland or Britain” during its era. A kaleidoscopic blend of memoir, autofiction, and literary studies, A Ghost in the Throat moves fluidly between past and present, quest and elegy, poetry and the people who make it.
