Dubliners by James Joyce

Amy DublinersDubliners is a series of short stories, set in Dublin in the early 1900s. There isn’t a great deal of plot; it is a snapshot of the lives of different people across the city. Lives filled with love, frustration, contentment, rage, drunkenness, hope, loneliness, lust and despair. They are a little bleak, but beautifully so.

The green road

Amy Green Road

The Green Road is about the Irish Madigan family, from the eighties until now. They are a regular family, each playing the role expected of them, wishing to be understood, not seeking to understand. There is no great plot, but time spent in New York, Mali, Dublin and a small town in County Clare. No characters are truly likeable, and there is no significant resolution, but an interesting look at the selfishness, messiness, intractability, and strength of family ties, and the struggles of modern life.
