Summary (From the publisher):

A favorite Irish song begins: "When Irish eyes are smiling, sure t'is like a morn in spring." For many Americans, Ireland is still most closely associated with the movies of Bing Crosby and Barry Fitzgerald, the warblings of John McCormack and Carmel Quinn, and a host of other sentimental images--from St. Patrick's Day parades to bawdy limericks and buoyant blessings and ballads. But there are two sides to the Irish soul: the light and the dark. And the dark side takes no truer or more brilliant form than in these 17 deft stories from Irish literature. A mix of classic and modern works, the anthology includes such authors as James Joyce, Mary Ryan, Sean O'Faolain, Michael Jahn, Wendi Lee, Clark Howard, Bill Crider, and Peter Tremayne. In addition, it includes two full-length novels: John Brady's A Stone of the Heart and Ann C. Fallon's Blood Is Thicker. Settle back and enjoy storytelling at its best, from 17 masters of the genre.
