There’s nothing quite like A Ghost in the Throat, the first prose book from Irish poet Doireann Ní Ghríofa. It’s a domestic autobiography of a mother and wife; it’s the story of the forgotten female author of a famed 18th century mourning poem; it’s the mutual haunting of the two women across centuries; it’s the restoration of female texts to a history otherwise told by men.
