St. Patrick's Day Reads

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with these books by Irish writers:

The Infinities
John Banville

A dazzling new book that chronicles both a human family and a rather unholy gathering of immortals, from the author of the Booker Prize-winning The Sea.





Thanks for the Memories
Cecelia Ahern

With her marriage already in pieces, Joyce Conway nearly lost everything else. But she survived the terrible accident that left her hospitalized—and now, inxplicably, she can remember faces she has never seen, cobblestone Parisian streets she's never visited. A sudden, overwhelming sense of déjà vu has Joyce feeling as if her life is not her own.


Brooklyn
Colm Toibin

Committed to a quiet life in little Enniscorthy, Ireland, the industrious young Eilis Lacey reluctantly finds herself swept up in an unplanned adventure to America, engineered by the family priest and her glamorous, "ready for life" sister, Rose.



Heart and Soul
Maeve Binchy

An insightful, humorous, and compassionate story of family, friends, patients, and staff who are part of a heart clinic in a community caught between the old and the new Ireland.


Love and Summer
William Trevor

The tragic consequences of a woman's lost honor and a family's shame haunt several generations in Trevor's masterful 14th novel.
