Reproduces Heaney's wonderfully personal and emotive introduction to the memorial reading for O'Sullivan at Queen's College, New York, on 2nd May 1988: "There we were ... addressing soft-boiled eggs and wheaten bread, trying to find a topic of conversation that might elicit more than the Ulsterman's monsyllable out of my father. It makes me oddly proud to remember that moment, because it unified the outer edge and inner centre of my life". A fine copy. Brandes & Durkan B108.
