IRELAND UNHINGED: Encounters with a Wildly Changing Country, David Monagan

17 March, 2011

The boom to bust story of Ireland by the author of Jaywalking with the Irish.  Monagan, an expat who relocated his family to Ireland, goes in search of the soul of modern Ireland in the aftermath of a decade of explosive growth followed by a precipitous economic decline.  Frank McCourt called Monagan, who is in turn lyrical and hilarious, one of the best writers about Ireland today.
