about

What explains the fact that one of the world's smallest, least assuming countries has consistently been among the top 15 international travel destinations for Americans? Ireland's appeal can be attributed to many things: its blend of picturesque villages and bustling modern cities, its people known for their warmth, charm, stoicism, and individuality, its history - one of the most dramatic of any country on the planet - and its rich literary tradition. This engaging collection of short stories captures all these qualities of Ireland and more. Set in the Emerald Isle's legendary provinces of Ulster, Munster, Leinster, and Connaught, these varied tales by some of the world's most renowned writers give prospective visitors an immediate feel for the country's enduring past and exciting present. Frank O'Connor, Liam O'Flaherty, William Trevor, John McGahern, Benedict Kiely, Patrick Kavanugh, Gerry Adams, Hugo Hamilton, and Desmond Hogan are among the talents represented here.
