Synopsis: David Monagan is a restless, middle-aged father of three who for years has dreamed of relocating from the USA to Ireland, the land of his forebears.

In his elegantly written, often hilarious narrative, Monagan describes his family's evolving struggle to come to terms with life in a strange land. The result is an honest, heartfelt and penetrating portrait of a contemporary Ireland that is so often portrayed throug the wistful lens of cliches that no longer apply.

Jaywalking with the Irish is a tale of revelations - about donkey carts transformed into BMWs, about great blessings of warmth sometimes laced with begrudgery, about what happens to a family that ditches stability for the tricky task of fitting in abroad.

From the Inside Flap: "Jaywalking with the Irish is a hard, beautiful book about Ireland, written with love but facing head-on the darkness and ugliness that rode in on the back of the Celtic Tiger. There are begrudgers and menacing teenagers in this tale and you wonder why the Monagans of comfortable Connecticut stayed in Cork at all. Well, that's the story. That's the wonder. When the darkness is pushed aside you're in a bright landscape where people, if you'll forgive the platitude, believe life is for living. So do the delightful Monagans -- and that's why they found their niche in Cork. David Monagan captures the country and its landscape in detail and he does it with wit, charm, and compassion. You won't find a better or depiction of Ireland than this one."

Frank McCourt, author Angela's Ashes

"Jaywalking with the Irish is a great read and a celebration of Cork. It is also a better book than the immensely popular McCarthy's Bar -- at once more honest and human, while offering a deeper conversation with Ireland and yet managing to be funny in all the right places."

Tom McCarthy, author Mr. Dineen's Careful Parade and executive of the Cork Europea Capital of Culture 2005 project
