For All That I Found There

For All That I Found There

(1973)
A novel by

 
For all that I found there, I might as well be where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea.
Lady Caroline Maureen Hamilton-Temple-Blackwood eldest child of the 4th Marquess of Dufferin and Ava and the brewery heiress Maureen Guinness. She married Lucien Freud, Isreal Citkowitz and Robert Lowell.
The sentimental nostalgia of these lines has no part in Caroline Blackwood's view of her native Ulster. This collection brings together the work of a startlingly original writer who looks back on her childhood with the same sardonic gaze that she directs upon the wider world. Her book is divided into three parts -Fiction, Fact and Ulster - and contains both stories and reportage. Whether the subject be a burns hospital, a Women's Lib. meeting, a progressive school in Harlem, or simply the age-old conflict between the sexes, she writes with a kind of appalled wit which never fails to illuminate the realities.
Caroline Blackwood was born and brought up in County Down, and has lived since in England and America. She is married to the poet Robert Lowell.
