I heard Nuala O'Faolain interviewed on CBC radio many years ago when this book came out. She spoke about being a single woman and spending Christmas alone one year - completely alone. I was intrigued. She also spoke about her career as a writer and media person in Ireland and what that was like as a woman. The title of the book came from other women recognizing her at events or on the street and having a sense that she was important but not being able to recall why - so she would be asked - Are You Somebody? - meaning are you somebody important that we should know?

Loved this read!
