After a month in Boston doing fieldwork I arrived back in Ireland yesterday. In the thirty hours I've been home, I've been asleep for twenty five! Hopefully that'll cure any jetlag for the coming week. I enjoyed the trip. Boston is a great city (well, many co-joined cities). It was also very productive and I met loads of interesting people. By the month's end I'd undertaken 21 interviews, given 6 talks, had 21 other meetings, and attended 5 workshops/conferences. I only managed to read three novels set in the area though. The picture right is of Brookline and Boston taken from the tower in Mount Auburn Cemetery.
