Letters of a Love-hungry Farmer and Other Irish Stories
Roberts Rinehart Publishers, 1997 - 383 strani
Ireland's favorite publican, playwright and storyteller gives us five novellas, each presented as a series of comical letters between colorful characters of the Kerry hills. These stories have become classics over the years as individual books, and are now available in a single volume.
In the title story, bachelor farmer John Bosco McClane, at the age of 52, decides to seek a wife. The letters to a matchmaker, his aunt, his solicitor and others are all very funny, but in the background there lies the sad story of stark loneliness.
In Letters of a Matchmaker a small farmer involves himself in the delicate business of finding mates for the unattached. Letters of a Successful T.D. gives us insight into the life of a politician on his way up the ladder. Father Martin O'Mora tries to root out sin among his parishioners in Letters of a Parish Priest, and Letters of a Country Postman tell of a gossip who tries to discover secrets hidden within the envelopes he delivers.
