Memories of an Islander: A Life on Scattery and Beyond
by
Don Scanlan

Clasp Press, 86 pp, €10, Paperback,
16 x 21 cm (wide), ISBN: 1-900545-17-9.

Describing island life from the 1920s to the 40s on land and sea. There is an account of the author’s time as lighthouse-keeper around the Irish coast, with plenty of photographs of people in their daily island life, the school, pilots and lighthousemen, seamen and houses on the island—the chapter on the houses and that on the school are by respectively Fidelma Mullane and Bríd A. O’Mahony. There seems to be no reason why the wide format should have been chosen (no element uses the full width of the page), but it is pleasantly laid out.
