How it’s New York: The authors all live in the New York area
How it’s Irish: They are describing their Dublin childhoods


Don’t miss this… three of our own New York Irish Arts writers!savage


Screaming, mitching, cadging, lying and . . . getting away with it. Irish Childhood by them who survived it.

Four Dubliners present the recipe for a Classic Irish Childhood: one part poverty, one part sexual repression, one part evil teachers. Add a fistful of salt and serve with a side of black humor. Then emigrate.

Kevin Holohan, Honor Molloy, Maeve Price and Michelle Woods share selections by Maeve Brennan, Maura Laverty, Patrick McCabe, Frank O’Connor and James Joyce.
