    In preparation for a trip to Ireland in late summer, I am reading some good Irish short stories. I've read James Joyce ("Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses"), Flann O'Brien ("The Poor Mouth"), and William Trevor ("Two Lives"), now I'm reading Frank O'Connor. This author writes with versatility in different styles, capturing different characters in different Irish settings. I read "Guests of A Nation" with an opening of warm comradery and an ending that underscores the cruel demands of war for Irish independence. "Orpheus and His Lute" is a funny, but truthful and relevant story that all musicians should read. "In the Train" and "the Majesty of the Law" both underscore the humanity of many in the police force and their frustrations with enforcing unfair British laws (at that time) on the Irish people. "The Long Road to Ummera" challenges with strong Irish tradition the famous American title "You Can Never Go Home." A "Song without Words" is a humorous and insightful story of monks in a monastery, one was a famous horse jockey in his previous life and is still an expert on horse racing (and horse betting); he inspires another brother in this avocation, to an expected fault! In "Uprooted" two adult brothers, one a priest and the other a teacher, return home to their small town to do one last favor for their headstrong and "celebrative" father. Ned Lowry and Rita Lomasney were best friends since childhood, Ned was well-bred, well-mannered, and educated, Rita from a typical Irish family, but Rita is flamboyant and fiercely independent in both life and love: "The Mad Lomasneys." The sibling rivalry of "The Luceys" shows how far the resentment and pride between two brothers can divide a family for at least two generations. "News for the Church" recounts an episode in the confessional booth between a busy priest and a young woman active in life and love, the concantenation prompts the reader to ask "what next?" The story "Judas" concerns two young lovers with demanding single mothers seeking to win maternal approval as they strive to stay together. That's as far as I got-- still seven more to go! Now I'm also reading "Midsummer Night Madness and Other Stories" by Sean O'Faolain!

    One of two short story collections of Frank O'Connor that I went through. I had the same reaction to them that I have with all but a handful of short story writers -- that while a few of the author's works really captured my attention, the rest really didn't. The ones that stood out for me here were "Guests of the Nation," "The Drunkard" and "Legal Aid."

    Honestly, I only read "Internment." Since the story was in a textbook and not in a personal book, I just marked this as read... The story was alright. It definitely did a good job of describing everyday life during that time period.
