A Certain Place of Dreams

"Ira David Socol has written a love letter to Northern Ireland. Love being the complicated business that it is, his method is somewhat roundabout. An unnamed narrator grew up in Derry and went off to the United States. He has come back with an American girlfriend and attempts to show her what it is he loves about his country. He grew up amid Irish airs and Beatles songs; ancient myths and boys' adventures; stories of the Irish revolution and personal experiences of "the Troubles." He seems to have taken part in the Troubles - on the Irish Catholic side - and that's what drove him off to the U.S." - James Yarnall on Amazon.comPaperback Amazon (US)Paperback Amazon (UK)Paperback Barnes&NobleA Certain Place of Dreamsby Ira David Socol978-0615163697
