About the Book
Introduction by Joe Jeffs: Readers will note that many of these stories relate to the foibles of or incidents in the life of Irish-Americans. This reflects my upbringing in the Irish side of my family. The Irish have a long history of story telling and I suspect that I have inherited a wee bit of those national genes. To see in an activity, an event or emotion the seed of a story and then to fertilize it with your imagination is the essence for creating a short story. A corollary to this is the need to allot regular time for the actual writing and revision. Alas! At the latter I have been an abject failure. Thus, my output has been quite modest—a total of 20 or so finished stories and parts of a novella and novel. This collection contains a baker’s dozen of the short stories. I hope my readers will find as much pleasure in reading as I did in writing them. Erin go bragh!
