Product Description

Now an eminent writer and critic, Patricia Craig was expelled from her convent grammar school at a time when girls from respectable families were never kicked out of school, and certainly not when the ‘offence’ was carrying-on with boys in the sand dunes in the Donegal Gaeltacht while attending an Irish language summer school.

Asking for Trouble is an absorbing coming-of-age memoir, and an entertaining account of religious identities, family relationships and growing up in 1950s Belfast and Donegal.
