Barefoot Years (BWB Texts)

Author(s): Martin Edmond

Literary Criticism & Essays & Journalism

'The myriad of the living in all of their many forms, defunct, mutant, revenant or otherwise; traversing memory's infinite field.' Martin Edmond's Barefoot Years is a memoir in which the author attempts to re-inhabit the lost domain of childhood. It is evocative and poignant, detailed yet fragmentary, full of half-forgotten things: what may be recovered also reveals that which is gone forever. These remembered beginnings, both familiar and strange, take us back to when a world was being made. This BWB Text forms the first part of a full memoir by Martin Edmond to be published by Bridget Williams Books in 2015.
