UK Kirkus Review » Marie Heaney, who is married to poet Seamus, has explored the legacy of Northern Ireland in her own fashion, with a luminous account of the Celtic legends. In Over Nine Waves: A Book of Irish Legends she untangles the complex deeds of the Sidhe or fairy folk, the terrible but exciting web of murders, abductions and passions. Reviewed by novelist, critic and cultural historian Marina Warner (Kirkus UK)
