Nonfiction stories about Irish music.
In a voice that "delivers both respect and irreverence with convincing authority," Terence Winch gives us "a world--two worlds in fact--his parents' New York immigrant Irish life in the '30's,'40's, and '50's, and the bubbling, eventful confusion of growing up as an artist on the East Coast from the late '60's on. These worlds are joined at the heart by music. And we are as close (as they say in the old Irish poem) to 'the music of what happens' as we are likely to get."--Charles Fanning.
A noted poet, musician, and fiction-writer, Winch establishes a witty and yet austere presence in prose that is clean, clear, and utterly engrossing.
