Tales from the Irish Club: A Collection of Short Stories
by Lester Goran
This collection of short stories contains 11 wry accounts of an enclave of Irish Americans in Pittsburgh during and after World War II. They are often comic, and sometimes tragic tales of Jack Lanahan, who carves nothing but wooden roosters, Long Conall O'Brien and others.

Another blast from the past book, but a charmer nonetheless. This is a sweet collection of short stories telling all about the history of the Hibernian clubs in Pittsburgh with lots of reflections on Forbes Field and Oakland by when. Guess I am just a sucker for memorabilia, but I really enjoyed this selection.
