New in Paperback: Gerard Donovan's YOUNG IRELANDERS

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day is a new paperback edition of Gerard Donovan's marvelous collection of short stories, Young Irelanders. These interrelated stories magnify the new Ireland and illuminate how the Irish are coping with its rewards and pressures: immigration from Eastern Europe and beyond, mid-life crisis, adultery and divorce, a lost sense of place and history.

Gerard Donovan is the author of three poetry collections and three novels: Schopenhauer’s Telescope (2003), nominated for the Man Booker Prize, Julius Winsome (2006) and Sunless (2008).
