Utterly Magnificent Real Woman

I am so horribly late on this. Two years late. The brilliant, brave, lyrical thinker and writer Nuala O’Faolain (Are You Somebody?) who died from lung cancer in 2008, gives the most heart wrenching, real interview with Marian Finucane on Irish Radio. I never heard a radio interview that so utterly cracked me open. If you’re tired or cranky or otherwise distressed about your hum drum life, get a little perspective and listen to this.

For some reason, can’t seem to add the link directly. But go to this page to hear it. It’s worth it.
