9781901866568: Breakfast the Night Before: Recollections of an Irish Horse Dealer

A lovely memoir for lovers of horses and of the farming life. Marjorie Quarton gives a personal view of rural Irish life from the 1930s to the 1970s, describing the upbringing of a Protestant only child on a farm in north Tipperary. Taking over on her father's death, working the land and animals (dogs, sheep, horses, cattle), she recounts with great humor and poignancy her dealings at fairs throughout the country, a lone woman in a man's world.

From Library Journal:

First published in 1988, novelist Quarton's account reflects her life in the Irish countryside from childhood through adolescence and beyond. She left her family farm in north Tipperary for a Dublin education but returned to her roots after her father's death. She recalls her dealings with the locals and describes the horses, dogs, and other animals that comprised the pastoral life. Charming.
