The Road to Dungannon

Journeys in Literary Ireland

• “Michael Pearson’s The Road to Dungannon is a book like no other, a highly original and wonderfully deft weaving together of memory and history, place and time, knowledge and mystery, the personal and the political, darkness and light. Pearson’s erudition is constantly illuminating but he also takes us with him on a journey into the unexplored byways of the Irish imagination. Anyone with a love for Ireland will relish this unique exploration of its past and present.”—Fintan O’Toole, author of We Don't Know Ourselves: A Personal History of Modern Ireland • “Michael Pearson is one of our nation’s finest memoirists.”—Willie Morris, former editor of Harper’s Magazine • “Michael Pearson is a wayfarer in search of connection, a keen observer ever attentive to the fit word, a born storyteller. To his large-hearted exploration of Irish letters past and present and to his search for his own heritage he brings a deep love of place and the literature that rises from it. Pearson’s engaging voice and wide knowledge make The Road to Dungannon a book to be savored. A masterwork.”—Janet Peery, National Book Award Finalist for The River Beyond the World
