Irish March

The start of my annual Irish March was slightly delayed - at the end of February, I had the sudden urge to read Nick Hornby's young adult novel, Slam. (I shouldn't have been so impulsive. The book wasn't very good.) But now with that finished, I can move on to my usual Irish literature. I'm giving another chance to Brendan Behan's Borstal Boy, which I didn't really connect with last March and gave up on only partway through, which is something I rarely do. After that, I will re-read J.M. Synge's The Aran Islands, which I first read and loved in 2015. I didn't get around to buying any new Irish books for this year's reading, partly because we're on a mission to declutter our house, and I already have plenty of unread books around here.
