The Irish have always had a way with words
The Irish have always had a way with words. Nowhere is this magic more in evidence than in their short stories-stories that combine lyricism, humor and tragedy with rare imagination set in simple backgrounds, largely without props. The seemingly effortless art of the best Irish writers has an appeal that is naive and highly sophisticated at the same time; the disarming simplicity with which the tales are spun being somewhat misleading at first reading

Forty-Four Irish short Stories is one of my most treasured books. I enjoyed this book and you would also if you had a love for Irish stories. I picked up a battered paperback copy at a yardsale years ago for 25 cents, and it's proven to be worth much, much more.

The Irish short story has a distinctive place in the modern Irish literary tradition. Many of Ireland's best writers, both in English and Irish, have been practitioners of the genre. It is possible that the Irish short story evolved naturally from the ancient tradition of oral storytelling in Ireland. The written word has been cultivated in Ireland since the introduction of the Roman alphabet by the Christian missionaries in the fifth century
