One of Ireland's best-known booksellers makes his annotated choice of the best, the most interesting, and the most influential books published in Ireland over the last century. In keeping with the congenial and maverick personality of the author, there are many unexpected inclusions, and some unexpected exclusions, notably James Joyce's Ulysses. The list begins with Aidan Higgins and finishes with William Trevor and on the way includes John Healy, Peadar O'Donnell, Peter Somerville-Large, Thomas Lynch, and Eilís Dillon. Kenny's arguments will intrigue, annoy, and delight in equal measure. ""The book is full of anecdotes of the great writers that the Kenny family have encountered in the decades that their bookstore became such a magnet.""--Irish Voice

Review:
