Diamonds & Holes in My Shoes. However, since she had written many more books, I won't let the memoir put me off and I will read some of her other work and decide if this one is the odd one out or if this is truly her writing style. This book took me a long time to read.

Diamonds & Holes in My Shoes. 0340898453 (ISBN13: 9780340898451). Deirdre's life did not hold my interest or maybe it was the way it was written. I stuck it out. It is not well written. I love memoirs and I loved Deirdre's story FALLING FOR A DANCER (only saw the movie form) and thought I'd read what Deirdre was all about.

And I could say Oo oo oo As if everybody knows What I'm talking about As if everybody would know Exactly what I was talking about Talking about diamonds on the soles of her shoes

And I could say Oo oo oo As if everybody knows What I'm talking about As if everybody would know Exactly what I was talking about Talking about diamonds on the soles of her shoes. She makes the sign of a teaspoon He makes the sign of a wave The poor boy changes clothes And puts on after-shave To compensate for his ordinary shoes. And she said honey take me dancing But they ended up sleeping In a doorway By the bodegas and the lights on Upper Broadway Wearing diamonds on the soles of their shoes.

When Deirdre Purcell turned sixty, she cheered. Never again would she have to fit into a size ten dress, and while her dream of crossing the US on a Harley remained, if it was never realised, well, she'd live. In Diamonds and Holes in My Shoes, for the first time, this much-loved story-teller takes stock of her years to date and reveals very personal memories and reflections. From her earliest days as a small child with a large imagination, trotting perilously close to the edge of the River Tolka near her home, her head buried in her library book, she weaves an engrossing tapestry of a resilient personal and professional life punctuated by astonishing and sudden changes. Recounted with characteristic frankness, humour and insight, Deirdre chronicles the years as an Abbey actress, the triumphs and failures as an acclaimed journalist who elicited memorable interviews from a host of famous personalities, the break-up of a marriage in an era when tolerance of single mothers was not as it is now - and her transition into the peculiar life of the novelist via the ghost-writing of Gay Byrne's autobiography. Illustrated with a treasure trove of photographs, Diamonds and Holes in My Shoes is the story behind the story-teller from a keen observer who has recorded a dramatically changing Ireland over the past sixty years.

Although Deirdre Purcell is one of high favorite writer I was disappointed by the turn of this memoir. But maybe it is just because fiction sometimes feels more real and entertaining than reality? Maybe memoirs are not my cup of tea?

This is a very fine story. I enjoyed reading it. Delivery of book was perfect.
