The Farmer’s Son is an unflinching yet tender memoir about small livestock farming way of life in rural Ireland that almost disappeared if not in Ireland than certainly in our own country. While there’s nothing romantic about such a hardscrabble life Connell’s account of his careful and humane husbandry is profoundly moving.
