    This is the memoir of a French writer Jean Sulivan, a Breton priest who assumed this nom de plume because of his admiration for teh Hollywood comedy Sullivans travels. The book deals with growing up in Brittany in hte immediate aftermath of of World War, a conflict which claimed his father; the traumatic remarriage of a pious mother, to whome he was very close; his vocation to the priesthood; his early career as a writer; and the death of his mother.

    Says Eamon: His mothers unflinching faith has always been an inspiration to Sulivan. When she experienced doubts on her death bed, her son wondered how he himself would face that challenge. Finding the book raw and moving, Eamon translated it into English. Its account of a Breton rural childhood will reverberate with experience of many Irish people.
