Nuala O'Faolain, Journalist and Author, Dead at 68
Irish journalist and author Nuala O'Faolain died May 9 in Dublin of lung cancer at the age of 68.
A radio and television broadcaster, O'Faolain was well known as an opinion columnist for The Irish Times even before her first memoir, Are You Somebody?, made her a best-selling author. Read more at NPR where you can also listen to a 2001 interview with O'Faolain with Terry Gross.
There's also an interesting article in The Guardian in which O'Faolain talks about finding out that she was dying. She says, among other things, "I was amazed how quickly my whole life turned black."
