Hello all at JackHlland.net!

I have just returned home from purchasing every copy of Misogyny off the shelf at my local Chapters/Indigo book store. These copies will be my Christmas gifts to friends this year. Yesterday I picked the book up for my self,reading quicly the back cover thinking "how important" and by the time I got home, read the introduction, I had decided I was going back to buy every copy to share with my friends & family. I, like Mr Hollands Daughter, have not ever felt the wrath of Misogyny directly, and my yogic personality rarely allows for rude behavior to have an effect on me. I do however feel a great connection to the woman who through out history and to this day, have had to cower helpless Hello all at JackHolland.net!

I do however feel a great connection to the woman who through out history and to this day, have had to cower helpless in the shadows of hatred.

Thank you all for the opportunity to educate myself a little more.

Peace,
Cathy

Delighted to learn about this site, though I'm sad at the death that occasioned it. I met Jack a few times, brief encounters, really. I enjoyed his columns and insights on developments into life in Northern Ireland. He helped inspired hope, hope that has in good measure has come to fruition -- that the divide in NI can be bridged with greater understanding. Ger

un salut à mon ami Jack.On se réjouit que son dernier livre "Misogyny: ‘The World’s Oldest Prejudice" soit publié très prochainement. Et un grand coup de chapeau pour Mary et Jenny, pour ce qu'elles font et pour ce qu'elles sont.
Avec toute ma tendresse

Dear Mary and Jenny,
Thank you for giving me the honour to sign this Guestbook. I still treasure Jack's book on Druid Time which he signed for me on June 2nd, 1986 in a restaurant in NYC. I also remember our meeting in Rome in 1989. I'm so glad that Jack's latest book is coming out this summer (after all the trouble you had with his publisher and agent) thus fulfilling his wish. God works in mysterious ways. I was shocked at hearing about his death, and I hope that in time your pain will go away. All the best and take care.

Dear Mary and Jennie: Thanks for this wonderful tribute to a dearly loved brother-in-law. Jack and I shared many interests, including ancient Rome, politics, writing and feminism. I loved our visits with you all over the years, whether to greet Jennie as a newborn in Dublin, to see Rome for the first time when you were in Trevignano, or to entertain you at Suan Croi in Jamestown. It was Jack who translated "Heart's Repose" for us so we could, rather grandiosely, name our home by Narragansett Bay. His death was an awful shock and a loss we will alwa**uffer, as his life and work were gifts we will always be grateful for.
Love from big sister Barbara

What a beautiful tribute. I had the privilege of knowing Jack for a little over five years. I will miss his wit, his kindness, and his irreverence. He was a gifted author who inspired and challenged me (especially when it came to Irish politics).

I'll miss sparring with you, Jack.

Although I didn't know Jack that long, almost six years, he became a good friend to me, I have fond memories of Jack in New York, eating at his home with a well cooked meal from Mary his beautiful wife, drinking wine at Raoul's Restaurant before we headed to his home. Jack was a well read and studied man of the world, I was a simple lad from Belfast, but I felt we hit it of as mates. I will always remember you mate, any time I visit NYC there will be a glass of wine waiting for you in Raoul's at Prince St.

You have done Jack proud with this tribute / archive / advocacy. The collection of Echo articles will be a valuable resource for years to come. The photos are fun - my hair was at least as bad when I sat at a desk beside Jack's in Hibernia in 1975.
It is hard to credit that Contempt could be dropped by the publisher in the manner it was. The excerpts demonstrate - yet again - Jack's lightly worn, elegantly expressed scholarship and conviction.
I look forward to its eventual publication in full.

Dearest Cousins Mary and Jenny,
This is a wonderful tribute to Jack. I especially enjoyed the photo gallery and picture from your wedding day. You were indeed the most bodacious bride I have ever seen, Mary!

I hope you are successful in your quest to have his book published -- have you approached a woman ???

I think of you often and with great fondness. Love always,
Mary Jo
