    1. A rich collection that mines the heart of what it is to be Irish fighting colonialism, strangled by religion, divided by urban and rural sensibilities, and focussed on the internal over the external world, leading to various kinds of family dysfunction The contributors credentials are impressive, all of them published several times over, many with multiple collections of short stories to their credit in addition to novels, screenplays and plays, and about a third belonging to the by invitation o [...]


    2. from my facebook postings I ve fallen in love With Elizabeth Bowen s short story, Summer Night, which I came across in The Granta Book of Irish Short stories I had a strange experience reading it At first, past midnight night, sleepy, I found it to be a huge challenge even on the sentence level and threw it down in dismay In the morning I forced myself to try it again Does sound like love, doesn t it The story is remarkable for many reasons not least because it employs multiple points of view, a [...]


    3. I wanted to love this book Thirty one Irish short stories and no than half of them maybe not even half delighted or touched or dazzled me And many of those that fit that category were re reads for me Enright s short introduction is excellent concise and direct Reading it, I expected an array of stories that would overwhelm me never imagining that all would, of course But I was so often underwhelmed here The very best stories in the collection,for me, were those by Anne Devlin, Edna O Brien, Col [...]



    4. Music at Annahullian by Eugene McCabe is a master piece There are a few not so exciting stories in the collection, but overall it s a very good collection.


    5. I loved this collection of contemporary Irish short stories It contains some really unique views of Ireland chosen by the editor Anne Enright because she liked them and felt like they spoke and dripped the essence of the Irish The tales are a mixed bag, several about children, many about unusual views of love, some about jobs, some about international relations including with ones about the English Irish conflicts, many, many focused on dysfunctional relationships, some with feminist attitudes M [...]



    6. My daughter brought a copy back from Ireland for me as a little souvenir of her visit to Dublin.I have really become interested in the short story form, and the authors all delivered well here.The use of language is so different, unique, it was almost like I was reading very fluently in a foreign tongue at times.I found this book to be a real teaser, and I want to explore many of them in depth I will be in Ireland next year and plan to haunt bookshops to pick up whatever I can by Anne Devlin, E [...]


    7. Mixed I loved some of the stories but was less enthusiastic about others, hence only three stars rather than the four I wanted to give The stories I loved, though, were fantastic So well worth a read, just don t feel you have to love it all.


    8. A nice collection Highlights include short stories by William Trevor, Colm Toibin and a beautifully sad story of dreaming and yearning by Eugene McCabe called Music at Annahullion The volume is worth buying for this alone.


    9. Like many of the Granta books this was better in some parts than others but on the whole was excellent.Ann Enright did an excellent job, I felt that there was an Irishness in every story, whether it be modern or traditional Plenty of charm and plenty of pure writing talent.


    10. Read for an OLLI class Wonderful experience of reading literature I would not have discovered onmy own and discussing it with a wonderful group of readers.







    11. Love this Get this on your Christmas pressie list Ireland have the talent when it comes to short stories.d actually fiction too
