As in his fiction, Higginss writing exquisitely capturessights, smells, and emotions, detailing his life from childhood inCounty Kildare before his familys economic decline, to his mothersslow, agonizing death- from his travels in England and South Africa, tohis two years spent living with a schoolmistress after the end of hisfirst marriage. In writing his memoirs Higgins exposes the sources for many of his best novels, from Scenes from a Receding Past to Langrishe, Go Down, giving the reader a rare look into the story behind the story.

But A Bestiaryis more than a factual expose—this collection of memoirs is constructedin a novelistic way, creating a work of literary art out of a life.
