188 BLUNT, Theresa Lennon Judas in Kilkenny. First Edition

BLUNT, Theresa Lennon. Judas in Kilkenny. St. John's, Newfoundland : Flanker Press Ltd., 2002. First Edition. Pp (12),13-284,(4). 8vo, black & green photo-illustrated cardcovers, black spine.

Theresa Agnes Lennon Blunt (b. August, 1931, Kilkenny, Ireland).

The author's memories of growing up in a tumultuous household in Kilkenny, Ireland in the 1940s. This is her first book.

Also published as I Sailed the Sky in a Silver Ship.

At the time of publication, Blunt resided in Vancouver.

"'Years and years ago when I was still a child in the marble city of my mind, I sailed the sky in a silver ship with an old man and his goat.'

Myths and legends, ageless rivalries, ghosts from the past and spirits awakened, these were the playthings of a child's imagination in the magical city of Kilkenny, Ireland. In the 1940s, children huddled to glean from their elders tales of woe and whimsy, and breathless were they who listened, gleaning what they could and learning what they chose from mistakes made long ago.

Judas in Kilkenny is the true story of one woman's coming of age in the Marble City. A young Theresa Lennon must put aside her childhood dreams in order to strive for peace in her tumultuous home life, and fight for her own independence, while trying to hide the secrets of a family headed for destruction.

In the midst of chaos came solace, in the form of an old man who would help her find the truth." - from the rear.

To some, censoringwhat kids can read offers a simple and powerful solution to maintaining co ntrol over their fragile lives. 'Censorship Goes to School' will help both teachers and parents select appropriate resources so they can better handlethe challenge of book banners. Schools can maintain authentic books within the curriculum and involve parents, teachers, and publishers in making ava ilable the best books for children." - from the rear cover. Very good.
