About the Author:

Alice Taylor lives in the village of Innishannon in County Cork, in a house attached to the local supermarket and post office. Since her eldest son has taken over responsibility for the shop, she has been able to devote more time to her writing. Alice Taylor worked as a telephonist in Killarney and Bandon. When she married, she moved to Innishannon where she ran a guesthouse at first, then the supermarket and post office. She and her husband, Gabriel Murphy, who sadly passed away in 2005, had four sons and one daughter. In 1984 she edited and published the first issue of Candlelight, a local magazine which has since appeared annually. In 1986 she published an illustrated collection of her own verse. To School Through the Fields was published in May 1988. It was an immediate success, launching Alice on a series of signing sessions, talks and readings the length and breadth of Ireland. Her first radio interview, forty two minutes long on RTE Radio's Gay Byrne Show, was the most talked about radio programme of 1988, and her first television interview, of the same length, was the highlight of the year on RTE television's Late Late Show. Since then she has appeared on radio programmes such as Woman's Hour, Midweek and The Gloria Hunniford Show, and she has been the subject of major profiles in the Observer and the Mail on Sunday. To School Through the Fields quickly became the biggest selling book ever published in Ireland, and her sequels, Quench the Lamp, The Village, Country Days and The Night Before Christmas, were also outstandingly successful. Since their initial publication these books of memoirs have also been translated and sold internationally. Alice has also written fiction: her first novel, The Woman of the House, was an immediate bestseller in Ireland, topping the paperback fiction lists for many weeks and the saga continues in two further books. One of Ireland's most popular authors, her most recent book is Tea and Talk.

Review:

I reckon it's going to be another winner -- Tommy Marren Show wonderful ... put The Women on your Christmas gift list -- Bandon Opinion a book that will grip you by the heart -- U Magazine a really special reading experience ... it's an amazing book with some wonderful stories -- Shannonside FM and Northern Sound's Joe Finnegan Show one of Ireland's favourites ... an absolutely beautiful read ... beautifully finished ... amazing stories that wouldn't be known without you ... the photographs in the book are special in themselves -- In Conversation with Weeshie Fogarty on Radio Kerry in these pages, we see Taylor's remarkable gift of elevating the ordinary to something special, something poetic, even ... Taylor avoids the mantel of social commentator in this book, and this is surely part of her charm. She is a teller of stories, simply that. She writes from personal experience and records the experience of others, without the gravitas and authority of an historian, but with empathy, wit and considerable poetic elegance. In The Women, she records fifteen remarkable lives that would otherwise have been forgotten. She is to be commended for that. And the fact that, like all of her books, it's a thing of gentle beauty -- Irish Independent highly enjoyable read -- Ireland's Own highly enjoyable read -- Ireland's Own Christmas Annual I highly recommend it ... I thoroughly enjoyed it -- The Arts House, Cork's C103 and Cork's 96FM
