KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection represents the editor's personal enthusiasm- and is intended for everyone's entertainment, draws from this country's literary legacy with its unmistakable national identity (and idiom). Only 21 of the 44 stories here have been previously published in this country- but the majority of contributors will be familiar- among them Paul Vincent Carroll, Lord Dunsany, James Joyce, Michael McLaverty and Bryan MacMahon, Frank O'Connor, Scan O'Faolain, Liam O'Flaherty, James Stephens, Shaw, Yeats, Wilde and George Moore. Once again the ebullience of fancy- and at the same time realism, humor, and a deep religious faith unify these stories and lend a special character- and charm.
