About this title:
There’s just something about Ireland. The mysterious, ancient dolmens. The bright charm of cobblestoned villages. The shaggy, white sheep, impossibly green hills, rugged coasts, or perhaps it is all of this along with something intangible— a sense of magic that hangs over the land like a mist after a shower. For 2007, the 365 Days In Ireland Calendar returns with hundreds of reasons to fall in love with the Emerald Isle: boats bobbing in Dungarvan Harbor, cosmopolitan Dublin, pubs serving bottomless pints of Guinness, sea stacks, a rousing game of Gaelic football. With gorgeous, full-color photographs by Tim Thompson and lyrical text by novelist Colum McCann, it’s an enchanted escape.

About the Author:
Every day—every moment spent in Ireland is a seduction. The dramatic sea spray of Cork's Roaring Water Bay. The Slieve League Cliffs. Light reflecting off the River Liffey. Crumbling relics of the past—towers, abbeys, dolmens. A fiddler fiddling in the pub, the Irish Derby, Blarney Castle of myth and story, witty Guinness ads, a swan gliding down the Erne. These are the wonders of the Emerald Isle, imbued with history and memory and a deep sense of place.
Combining the lyrical writing of novelist Colum McCan with hundreds of gorgeous photographs by Tim Thompson, 365 DAYS IN IRELAND captures the essence and heart of the land—the windswept beauty, indomitable spirit, and the thread of magic that wends through it all.
Tim Thompson is the photographer of the book Ireland, by Susan Poole, as well as a number of other travel books.
Colum McCann, the prize-winning author of Fishing the Sloe-Black River, This Side of Brightness, and most recently, Dancer: A Novel, has been called “the literary heir of Frank McCourt.”
