    "If you devote your life to writing -- and I have, for all my supposed tempestuous ways -- you live alone, you think alone and you write alone. I used to say when I was younger, an ancient mariner is what I want. Not too ancient. But he would be at sea a lot." Tonight, one of Ireland's finest writers, Edna O'Brien, in interview with Vincent Woods at the Town Hall Theatre in Galway, as part of the Cúirt literary festival, on her memoir Country Girl (Faber), just out in paperback, and her life in writing.
