In High Germany

(A book in the Open Door Series 1 series)
A Novella by

‘An Irish emigrant in Germany tells his son about football, and about home, through the nostalgia he feels for a match played many years ago.

This is the story of Euro ’88. Excitement is high for football fanatics like Eoin, Shane and Mick, all working abroad. Now they are in Germany supporting the Irish team, witnessing the highs and the lows and the cultural divides that separate them.

For these emigrant friends, home is not where the heart is. Home is where the team plays, and there will be many adventures on and off the field before the final whistle blows.
Included in this Open Door is A Poet's Notebook—a selection of short poems about ordinary life—with the author’s notes on how and why they were written.’

Dermot Bolger is a prolific novelist, poet, playwright and screenwriter. His reputation grows with publication of The Journey Home, which “bristles.”( The New Yorker) The New York Times Book Review raved about this “rich, conflicted, ferociously vital book.”

Bolger founded and edited The Raven Arts Press in Dublin, which has become New Island Press, one of the most distinguished literary publishing houses in Ireland. His numerous awards include the Samuel Beckett Award, ÆMemorial Award and The Stuart Parker BBC Award. Dermot Bolger lives in Dublin.
