Coming-of-age Stories by Irish and Irish American Writers

Unknown - 2001
Rate this:
Twelve lively and beguiling stories explore coming-of-age in Ireland today. The perfect novel for teens who are eager to discover How the Irish Saved Civilization and who read or saw Angela's Ashes.
Twelve remarkable coming-of-age stories capture both the old, beguiling Ireland and its new energy today. Stories tell of a love so strong it makes the stars shine in daylight; how Catholic and Protestant hostilities burn away a new romance; the hidden longing of a past summer; a waitressing job in Texas that offers a glimpse of the harsh dream of immigrant life. In Emma Donoghue's title story, Mammy's second wedding brings out the bloody truth between sisters. Maeve Binchy and Ita Daly tell of old secrets cast off at last, and Chris Lynch shows how a young couple's journey to an abortion clinic in Liverpool leads to a painful awakening of deepest feelings.
By turns hilarious, touching, and tragic, the wide range of subject and style will appeal to adults as well as young adults.
