Chestnut Street by Maeve Binchy

“The same characters pop up in just a handful of stories, and in these tales Binchy show these residents of Chestnut Street from different angles so effectively that many readers may find themselves yearning for the book this could have been if the author had just had more time. As is perhaps inevitable in a posthumous collection, a few of the stories don’t feel finished . . . But there are still enough little gems in Chestnut Street, enough kindness, wisdom and insight into human nature, to remind readers why Maeve Binchy was one of the most beloved writers this country has produced.”

Irish Above All by Mary Pat Kelly

“Irish Above All combines the myths and magic of Ireland with the grit and energy of Irish-American Chicago in the first half of the 20th century. I am delighted that main character Nora Kelly travels with Eleanor Roosevelt to visit the US Marines stationed in my beloved Derry during WWII—a little known story—and that Nora has a spiritual awakening in the Grianan of Aileach, a sacred space for me since childhood.”

Territories of the Voice: Contemporary Stories by Irish Women Writers

Edited by Louise DeSolvo, Kathleen Walsh D’Arcy, Katherine Hogan

“In the introduction to this valuable volume of 27 stories, the editors offer a brief, instructive survey of the publishing scene in Ireland, noting that there has been an ‘explosion of contemporary Irish women's writing.’ The stories they have selected, most of them written after 1960, are of nearly uniform excellence . . . Almost without exception, the stories are richly atmospheric, written in spare, supple prose and animated by dialogue that rings true. Readers should welcome this trove of fine writing.”

Ireland by Frank Delaney

BBC reporter Delaney's fictionalized history of his native country, an Irish bestseller, is a sprawling, riveting read, a book of stories melding into a novel wrapped up in an Irish history text . . . The stories utterly captivate the young Ronan ("This is the best thing that ever, ever happened"), and they'll draw readers in, too, with their warriors and kings, drinkers and devils, all rendered cleanly and without undue sentimentality.
