Thin Places – Kerri nic Dochartaigh

Kerri ni Dochartaigh grew up in Derry in the very midst of the Troubles, and this is a visceral account of the lasting impact of that experience.

 ‘Thin Places’ is a richly satisfying read, harrowing at times, drawing in so many interesting themes – grief, loss, the solace of the natural world, the power of place, and of naming and language.  There were so many passages that I wanted to highlight to read again, and ideas that I wanted to revisit.
