"...I must tell you that I am not really an old lady; just cleverly disguised as one. Art and color keep me young, keep me sane. Working as I do as an untutored 'outsider' artist is my therapy, my medicine, my joy, and my purpose in life.

Color surrounds me: I revel in it, splash it everywhere, gulp it with a spoon. I am immersed in art. I make it, collect it, it fills and defines my existence. Childish, shamanistic, wild and anarchic, it is as far outside the box as it is possible to be. Box?? There is no box!

Be bold, be adventurous. Do profound things, dazzle yourself and the world. Don't wear beige: it might kill you. Contribute to society, and live large. Life is short, make every moment count. It is never too late to find your passion." -- Sue Kreitzman

Manhattan to West Cork: Alice's Adventures in Ireland

Alice Carey

Best price for this book: $ 0

Buy

As a young girl Alice Carey came to realise that ‘home’ can mean different things. The only child of Irish immigrants to New York in search of a better life, her isolated and sometimes violent childhood was transformed when her mother started working as maid to legendary Broadway producer Jean Dalrymple. In Miss D.’s elegant Park Avenue town house, Alice was exposed to a life she had only seen in films. Her mother worked to save up enough money for them both to go ‘home’ to Ireland, travelling down below on ocean liners. Ireland in the 1960s was radically different from New York in every way, especially in its morality and attitudes to clerical abuse.


Yet despite the darkness, many years later Alice and her husband fell in love with an abandoned Georgian farmhouse in west Cork. As they restored its stables, Alice began unearthing buried childhood memories played out in wildly divergent homes in New York City, Fire Island and Killarney.


Manhattan to West Cork is the poignant tale of a young girl raised in a difficult environment juxtaposed with the story of a grown woman trying to make sense of her childhood.


"A great read ... Alice started her first diary aged 10; this love of recording may explain her perceptive eye and ear and why the simplicity of her narration draws us in." – Irish Examiner
