Fierce Appetites

Availability: In Stock
Dubray Staff Recommend Read.... In this funny, opinionated, and quotable blend of memoir and medieval history, Boyle writes frankly about her life, family and scholarly work. Whether comparing the The Táin to the Marvel universe, or mocking the tendency to package druids, Newgrange and Cú Chulainn into “a mush of non-history with an Enya soundtrack”, her writing is both knowledgeable and provocative. I’ve rarely felt so amused, enlightened, and engaged by a book – one I want to press on everyone! Recommended by Karina Clifford, Dubray Dundrum.
