Oil and Water
Oil and Water isn't just a biography. It tells the story of renowned Irish writer Molly Keane mainly through her books, against a popular social history of Anglo-Irish life in the 19th and 20th centuries. Her life is defined by her books. When asked why she didn't write her memoirs, she would reply, 'It's all there in my books.'
Oil and Water examines her life as defined through her books and plays; from her early light novels to the bestselling 'Good Behaviour,' beaten by a point for the Booker Prize, 'Time after Time' and 'Loving and Giving.' She became a media star in the 1980s and is still renowned for her wit and originality.
