Irish Christmas Stories and Irish Christmas Stories 2
edited by David Marcus
Published by Bloomsbury

The sense of the different messages of Christmas, and of its many meanings, is beautifully captured in these volumes as writers such as Sean O’Faolain, Frank O’Connor, William Trevor, Clare Boylan, John McGahern, Bernard McLaverty, Anne Devlin, John B. Keane, Patrick McCabe and Mary Morrissy, alongside newcomers, delight, entertain and move us.

‘This handsome collection presents Christmas through twenty-four separate windows. It is just the thing to curl up with beside the fire on a cold day’
The Irish Times

‘David Marcus, with some of the best writers in the genre to choose from, has produced an anthology in which memory, love, honour and loss are strongly present in the texture of daily life…….one of the most enjoyable reads this year’
Daily Telegraph

‘A treasure of a book, something to enrich your own or someone else’s Christmas’
Irish World
