Country of the Grand, Paperback

Country of the Grand Paperback



A young man driving across Ireland with his wife asks her how long she would wait before being with another man if he died.

A man is trapped, hidden, in a small changing room by the sea on Galway Bay, as he listens to his friends discuss his wife's infidelity.

An anguished young boy and his widowed mother struggle to reconstruct their lost father and husband in their own respective ways.

The stories in "Country of the Grand" magnify a New Ireland as it copes with the rewards and pressures of its fresh success: immigration, mid-life crisis, adultery and divorce, a lost sense of place and history, and of course, what to do with all that prosperity.
