About this title


Sean Dunne's mother died at the age of thirty-three, when he was four years old. In My Father's House, his account of his trials and tests of a childhood in Waterford in the 1960s, touched a communal heart when it was published first in 1991, and became a bestseller.
This eloquent testimony to one fractured family's capacity to prevail, including the heroic roles enacted by Sean's father, Richie, and their housekeeper, Tessie, unfolds with an understated dignity. Acute loss and vivid recall yield wry and poignant results.
Sean Dunne scrutinizes social history in an Irish housing-estate, with its stories of tragedy and resilience, through the lens of personal experience.
