John Connell discusses his number one bestseller in Ireland. The Cow Book tells how he unexpectedly returned from Australia to run his family farm in County Longford. Set over a calving season, it’s an account of farming, faith and family, depression, healing and joy, but it’s also the story of the cow itself through history. “Gripping,” Roddy Doyle. “Vivid and sharply observed,” Colm Toibin.
