Young Irelanders

A collection of stories by

Gerard Donovan has drawn comparisons to writers ranging from Kafka and Remarque to Jim Thompson and Stephen King. After over ten years in New York, his writing has come to define our culture as only a truly embedded outsider could do it. Now, in Young Irelanders, a stunning and elegiac collection of interrelated stories, Donovan returns to his home country of Ireland with a passion.

The stories in Young Irelanders shine a fresh light on the New Ireland and how the Irish are coping with its rewards and pressures: immigration, 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. Two stories from this collection have already been accepted for publication in Granta and great acclaim is sure to follow.
