Review:

"I loved "Ireland Unhinged" so much I almost ate it. It's hilarious. It's sad. It's loving. David Monagan vividly reveals how slugs destroyed his garden, how crooked bankers and corrupt politicians destroyed Ireland's economy and reduced the Celtic Tiger to a throw rug, and how spirituality fled in the face of rampant materialism. You don't have to be Irish to dive into this grand book." --Malachy McCourt, author of "A Monk Swimming"

Book Description:

A beautifully written, often hilarious cultural search for the heart of Ireland.

Book Description COUNCIL OAK BOOKS, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. The boom-to-bust story of Ireland by the acclaimed author of Jaywalking with the Irish A recent economic miracle, Ireland nation has now suffered a catastrophic collapse. Yet mirth, soulfulness, and eccentricity still reign. In Ireland Unhinged, Connecticut-born David Monagan explores his adopted country through the eyes of a passionate transplant. Moving first to Cork City, the author and his family embrace Ireland's unpredictable nature. One day Monagan's serving as a bartender in a cathedral; the next he's attending a beard convention. Before you know it, he's befriended famous writers like the lonely J. P. Donleavy, author of the iconic The Ginger Man, and an actor in Grade Z films. Still seeking the essence of Irish identity, Monagan moves his family to a country cottage on the banks of a majestic river, where he finds a timeless village universe. Hitting the road, the author encounters a white witch who still talks to fairies, eco-warriors, bog diggers, farmers, monks, an IRA killer, and brazen new Irish entrepreneurs galore. "What is Ireland? Has it lost its soul?" Monagan keeps asking as he roams from Cork to Dublin, Donegal and Belfast.His answers are singular, loving, searing, and often laugh-out-loud funny.
