Standard Name: Murphy, Dervla
Birth Name: Dervilla Mary Murphy
Irishwoman, is primarily a travel writer, with more than twenty books to her credit. She excels at vivid rendering of human international contact (often made over drinks), at trenchant and well-informed socio-political analysis (perhaps above all of Northern Ireland), and at the autobiographical aspects of her craft. Beginning in the later twentieth century, the political and social aspects of her books became steadily more important and her urge to seek out trouble spots began to predominate over the need to seek out beautiful and remote places., cosmopolitan
