The Irish have a long tradition of storytelling … having over the years authored the very best works in both fiction and nonfiction. From the works of Jonathan Swift (Gulliver’s Travels), Bram Stoker (Dracula) and Oscar Wilde (Picture of Dorian Gray) to Frank McCourt (Angela’s Ashes), Colm Toibin (Brooklyn), and Emma Donoghue (Room) — not to mention the likes of George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce, Roddy Doyle, Flann O’Brien, Samuel Beckett, Maeve Binchy and on and on… So many wonderful stories! A noted Irish author, Anne Enright has compiled a dazzling collection in “The Granta Book of the Irish Short Story”. In addition to this title the list contains classic works and books by noted contemporary irish authors.
With St. Patrick’s Day approaching, why not take the opportunity to “Read Green” and enjoy one (or two) of these engaging reads.
