Besides the usual green beer and bagels, celebrate with Nuala Anne McGrail – the perfect romantic and feisty Irish character – complete with brogue and blessed with the gift of second sight. Andrew Greeley introduces the adventures of the Irish beauty and her foil Dermot Michael in Irish Gold – then keeps them going through 12 mystery thrillers from Dublin to Chicago. The latest is Irish Tiger.
Greeley can get a little maudlin and religious in his other books, so stick to any title with “Irish” in the title and sure you’ll have a darlin’ read.
In two days, it’s St. Joseph’s Day – you can be Italian and eat donuts.
