Share Article

Leon Delmanehy’s autobiography details the progression of himself, society, and mankind.

Author Leon Delmanehy offers readers a look into the complex nature of man and the truth about the human condition in his autobiography, The Times I’ve Known – a book that, as it tells one man’s life story, also reflects the progress of the world that surrounds him.

The book follows Delmanehy’s life, starting from his birth in London, England, in the 1960s, to his family’s move back to Ireland and the subsequent experiences that followed. The author’s story reflects the cataclysmic changes that occurred in Ireland at that point in history – its social and economic transformation, brought by the progression of a nation. It traces Delmanehy’s life from impoverished youth in the backwoods of Ireland to eventual opulence, echoing his countries rise with the entire world as a vivid backdrop to an extraordinary personal history.

Delmanehy attempts to tell not only his personal story but that of his country and the whole world as well. It shows the world’s advancements as well as mankind’s terrible incongruity towards its less fortunate, and the also the harrowing destruction of the planet. This memoir is released not only as a testament to the author but as a legacy for his children and those who may follow, into a different world, unknown to us now but will be their inheritance. The author passionately prays that this bequest is still full of the majesty and incomparable beauty of this, our unique blue planet.

The Times I've Known will be featured at this year’s California Library Association Book Exhibit in San Diego, CA on November 12-15, 2010. For more information, log on to
