Irish Literature Series
Denis Donoghue

Warrenpoint is a memoir, and more than a memoir: with moments of novelistic narrative and lyricism wedded to musings on the aesthetic and theological themes of the author’s coming of age—filial piety, original sin, a child’s perceptions, and then the nature of terrorism, and of reading itself—it demonstrates the same insight and lucidity that have contributed to Denis Donoghue’s fame as one of our most important critics. Taking its title from the seaside town in Northern Ireland whose police barracks served as the residence for the Catholic Donoghues, it has been described as a family romance, dealing not only with the author’s love for his strong-willed, taciturn policeman father, but his love for literature and how it shaped his life to come.
