‘I caught a glimpse of him, behind the veil. And he knew I’d caught it. There was that understanding between us.

We were members of the club of the X-ray eyes, the club of people who can see into the human heart.’Eilis Ni Dhuibhne’s candid and moving memoir tells the story of her thirty-year relationship with the love of her life, internationally renowned folklorist Bo Almvqvist, capturing brilliantly the compromises and adjustments and phases of their relationship. Twelve Thousand Days is a remarkable story about love, grief and time, shot through with wry and sharp observations on Irish life, culture and morality.
