Irish in America. If the art bothers you, it’s supposed to. Keep reading, it’s very good.
The Q & A is quite good, too.
Thanks so much for the kind words!
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
Absolutely! Sorry there are so few of those kind words. I will say you pull no punches; the only thing Paddy’s been spared so far is the war, but that’d take him out of town.
I will also recommend to folks that they read THE GREAT SHAME by Thomas Keneally, for a detailed portrait of Irish home politics during the Blight, and for the story of what happened to many of Paddy’s fellow countrymen: transportation to Australia. ‘Transportation’ makes it sound like a cruise liner took them there.
Also add to your list of books the beautifully-drawn GONE TO AMERIKAY,
drawn by Colleen Doran and written by Derek McCulloch, due out April 4th.
THE GREAT SHAME is a masterpiece! The book can not be recommended more highly.
Looking forward to Gone To Amerikay!
It IS quite good! But you got me into it only to find it hasn’t been updated in over a year what’s happened?
I wish I knew! Can’t throw stones, glass houses and all, but other work may have taken John away from it. It’s a project very close to home, so I’m sure he will return to it in time.
Many, many new pages are on the way. I ended up working with an Editor that gave me some GREAT advice and the result was changing up some aspects of the story. So…I’ve been creating new pages, re-writing existing pages, etc. Hoping to have a large page dump happen in the next month or two.
Lots of new material up over at http://www.gohomepaddy.com for anyone interested.
Thanks again for the kind words Carla!
