Being Irish, Being New York
By Irish America Staff
November / December 2018
New York University’s Glucksman Ireland House opened a quarter-century ago, and since then has led and witnessed tremendous changes in both nations’ cultures. Being New York, Being Irish gathers many of Ireland and Irish America’s finest writers and critical thinkers to consider and celebrate its 25th anniversary. This beautifully illustrated hardback is a wonderful recognition of this vibrant institution’s work, and of its benefactors: Lew and Loretta Glucksman. Being Irish, Being New York is a vital and fitting tribute that will engage, entertain and provoke.
Being Irish, Being New York, is edited by Terry Golway, historian and senior editor at Politico, and includes contributions by Seamus Heaney, Alice McDermott, John Connolly, Colm Tóibín, Patricia Harty and Colum McCann. It was launched on October 25 at New York University’s Glucksman Ireland House. Available now in bookshops and online from www.iap.ie – €24.95 / $29.95. ♦
