“Leprechaun Sorrows” is a love letter to Ireland and its wonderfully rich past. This multi-layered story features the lust-addled leprechaun, Cullen, on a quest for a bewitching fairy spirit which left him terminally love sick. A journey that takes our vertically-challenged hero and his acolytes through the Irish countryside and through Goidelic history in an eccentric and lyrical depiction of the uniqueness of the Emerald Isle. With liberal doses of magic, comedy, heroism and romance, the merry band’s travels roam over a madcap geography of both time and place, one frequently fueled by poteen spirits and potent lust. This unique story is outrageously bawdy, unapologetically iconoclastic and irresistibly funny. It is as well a paean to a people so inhibited with taboos and hobbled by tradition that they do believe that God invented whiskey to keep the Irish from ruling the world. The novel will infuriate a few, delight a majority, and be treasured by both the Irish and those who wish to be.
