Book Review : Brooklyn
To understand futility, hope, dashed hopes, what does this say about an author. Colm Tóibín is remarkable in Brooklyn, where he speaks as a young Irish girl of the 50s who finds herself in America as if by accident. How will she answer when Ireland calls her back?
St. Patrick's Day Parades
Though there's much brouhaha over New York's Paddy's Day Parade, a marvel the world over to be sure, the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dublin touches "a Yank" deep to the core.
