Happiness is the most cherished of all the acclaimed collections by Mary Lavin, who was not just one of Ireland's major writers, but ranked among the greatest short-story writers of the twentieth century in the English language. From the title story, which echoes her experience as a widow with three young daughters, the stories in this classic collection explore the relationships and intimate emotions of her characters that are from a vanished Ireland but still resonate vividly today.
