From the Publisher

Based on the life of Terence Carolan, a legendary blind composer and harper who travelled the 18th-century Irish countryside, Carolan’s Farewell is gifted writer Charles Foran’s most luminous—and mischievous—novel yet. It is 1737, and the ailing Carolan, having completed an arduous pilgrimage, is returning home across a famine-ravaged Ireland. By his side is Owen Connor, his faithful companion. Master and servant, they are like Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, friends to the end.
