About this title

Synopsis:

Featuring "The News From Ireland"--set on the estate of the Protestant Pulvertafts during the famine years of the 1840s--this collection of short stories exemplifies the qualities of subtlety, honesty and humanity

From Library Journal:

These richly detailed dramas of small actions with large consequences will enhance any general fiction collection. These are stories of lost love, hope, and innocence, turning on a misinterpreted phrase or a misplaced handbag. Friendships split as revenge is taken on a Joycean scholar or is exacted by a lexicographer's daughter, in both cases destroying a life's work. The impossible love of two young girls for a dying boy becomes the wedge that leaves them passing strangerstourists, as many here, in their own lives. The stories are set in Ireland, England, and Italy; and the "news" from every quarter seems to be that no one escapes the evocative powers of memory, no one the past.
