Famine is a novel by Irish writer Liam O'Flaherty published in 1937.
Famine is a novel by Irish writer Liam O'Flaherty published in 1937. Set in the fictionally named Black Valley in the west of Ireland (there is an actual Black Valley in Kerry) during the Great Famine of the 1840s, the novel tells the story of three generations of the Kilmartin family. The novel is scarifying about the constitutional politics of Daniel O'Connell, seen as laying the oppressed Irish of the 19th century open to the famine that would destroy their society.
O'Flaherty was not the first Irish writer to note how quiet the Irish countryside got in 1849, but he used it to best effect. Apr 12, 2008 Kate rated it liked it. Shelves: historical-fiction. It was written well enough to keep me reading it almost straight through - very suspenseful and sad.

Liam O'Flaherty (Irish: Liam Ó Flaithearta; 28 August 1896 – 7 September 1984) was a significant Irish novelist and short story writer and a major figure in the Irish literary renaissance. Like his brother Tom Maidhc O'Flaherty (also a writer), he was involved for a time in left-wing politics, as their father, Maidhc Ó Flaithearta, before them.
Liam O'Flaherty (also known as Liam Ó Flaithearta) was born in 1896 in the small village of Gort na gCapall, on one of the Aran Islands in Galway. In 1908, at the age of twelve, he went to Rockwell College, and then went on to study at Holy Cross and University College, Dublin - he did not attend the first two schools for long. O'Flaherty initially intended to join the priesthood, but in 1917 he left school to join the Irish Guards, enlisting under the name 'Bill Ganly'.
