Product Description

In the space of twenty years Ireland has gone from a land of high unemployment and devastating emigration to one of the five richest countries in the world. The interrelated stories in Donavan’s Young Irelanders 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, and of course, what to do with all that prosperity. This is an important new chapter in the career of a top-flight literary writer.
