5.0 out of 5 starsThis was one of the most poignant books I have ever read!Feb. 20 1999

I read this book several years ago, and it prompted me to read other letters of John B. Keane. The 'Celebrated Letters' are brilliant, and sum up Irish country life. However, the Letters of a Love Hungry Farmer is the only one which brought a genuine tear to my eye.

Keane is wonderful. Charming stories that evoke an Ireland of 30-40 years ago. The ax he has to grind with the Catholic church is a reoccurring theme in his books and this is no exception, but if you want a flavor of a time and a place this is your escape!
