Broken Irish

Edward J. Delaney

This new novel by the winner of both the PEN/Winship Award and the O.Henry Prize is told in tight, intertwined, heart-wrenching chapters.

“Edward J. Delaney delicately shows how a single generation can unravel a heritage. Set on the edge of the 21st century in South Boston, Delaney’s cast struggles to find their dreams in a world that’s left traditions behind, and to some degree corrupted itself. An entire community is on the brink. Hope is the only hope. And faith cannot scrub the grime off its hands. With Broken Irish, Delaney delivers a gripping epic.” —-Adam Braver
