This new paperback edition of THE IRISH FACE IN AMERICA will be out just in time for St. Patricks Day promotion in 2006. The book profiles a vibrant cross section of Irish Americans and their contributions to every aspect of society. Several well-known figures are included: film stars Martin Sheen, Ed Burns, and Bridget Moynahan; Riverdance founder Michael Flatley; television personality and producer Merv Griffin; and pro golfer Mark OMeara among them. The stories span all ages and walks of life, and capture the richness and heritage of the Irish-American experience in cities as diverse as Boston, Massachusetts; New Orleans, Louisiana; South Bend, Indiana; and Oahu, Hawaii. Also featured are writers, firefighters, college students, performers, politicians, astronauts, and athletes. Providing a framework for these portraits of Irish-American life are longer essays by mystery writers Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark, T. J. Golway (coauthor of The Irish in America), Patricia Harty (editor of Irish America magazine), and former Coca-Cola president Don Keough. These insightful essays explore the question of what it is to be an Irish Americana subculture with enormous pride in its heritage, deeply rooted in tradition and culture yet utterly modern and ever changing.
