Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Gerard Donovan, author of Julius Winsome and Sunless, examines the changing face of Ireland in Young Irelanders, a stunning and elegiac collection of interrelated stories. In this marvelous volume coming in July 2008, Donovan returns to his home country of Ireland with a passion. The stories in Young Irelanders shine a fresh light on the New Ireland and how the Irish are coping with its rewards and pressures: immigration, mid-life crisis, adultery and divorce, a lost sense of place and history, and of course, what to do with all that prosperity.
