Delaney tells the story of his colorful country by utilizing the oft told and retold myths, legends and anecdotes. After spending time in Ireland I enjoyed the book as it resonated with much of what I heard and experienced in the country, not the big cities, but the country where many still cling to their mythology and folklore. The Irish, of which I am one, have a special relationship with the past and in Delaney’s book he searches for that past, trying to piece it together, ultimately piecing together the story of his own 1950’s family and their secrets. I enjoyed the read, the story is okay, it’s the romp with dialect and lore that made this book enjoyable. Not for everyone. But if your Irish, it’s a must read.
