The Irish Century series follows the Irish people’s epic struggle for independence through the tumultuous course of the 20th century. Morgan Llywelyn’s magisterial multi-novel chronicle of that story begins with the Easter Rising of 1916 and ends with the disarmament talks and beginnings of reconciliation among the Irish at the end of the 20th century.
Since 1980, Morgan Llywelyn has created an entire body of work chronicling the Celts and Ireland, from the earliest times to the present day. Her critically acclaimed novels, both of history and of mythology, have been translated into many languages. Her books include 1916 and Bard: The Odyssey of the Irish. She is an Irish citizen and lives in Dublin.
