O'Faulain Novel
25 Feb 1999 :

The Hollywood reporter has noted that since Frank McCourt's "Angela's Ashes," Irish literary properties have sprouted like clover.

What inspired this comment was the news that Julie Grau of Penguin Putnam Riverhead paid seven figures for world rights to Nuala O'Faulain's first novel, "My Everything Always," which shuffles between two time periods like A.S. Byatt's best seller "Possession."

The story follows a 50ish Irish travel writer who has lived for 30 years in England and becomes fascinated with an actual event from Ireland in the famine-era 1850s, a love affair between a titled English lady and an Irish stablehand.

Last year, Holt published O'Faulain's memoir "Are You Somebody? The Accidental Memoir of a Dublin Woman," recounting her upbringing as one of nine children in a broken home. O'Faulain is represented by Sydelle Kramer of Frances Goldin Literary Agency.
