A rather lackluster collection of stories by some of Ireland's best known female writers (Maeve Binchy, Patricia Scanlon, Marita Conlon-McKenna, etc.). ( )

oh my goodness - over al this book was pretty terrible - there is a run of about 8 stories in the middle that are just too terrible - the one upside was that it really gave me some hope that I could be a published author if this is what the best of Ireland is writing.

there are maybe 2 or 3 stories that I thought were solid and I will be taking note of their authors - but it was not really worth the pain of slogging through all the other stories. ( )

Follow up to "Irish Girls About Town". Not quite as entertaining as expected - a lot of talk about divorce and death. Too heavy for my liking. ( )

You thought you'd heard the whole story?

They painted the town green in the acclaimed international bestseller Irish Girls About Town. Now

Irish Girls Are Back In Town

...and their unique charm resonates throughout this high-spirited gathering of first-rate short fiction! So cozy up with some of today's best Irish women writers -- many favorites from the first Irish Girls collection and some lively newcomers -- as they spin nineteen all-new tales ranging from poignant and heartwarming to provocative and outright hilarious.

Against the madcap setting of a bingo hall, Cecelia Ahern conjures a woman's memories of her domineering mother in "The Calling"...Patricia Scanlan unwraps the truth behind "Façades" when two friends reconnect at the holidays. Are they as happy and successful as they appear?...A resolute widow pieces together a shocking betrayal -- and vows to outdo her competition -- in Gemma O'Connor's deliciously twisted "Dinner with Annie"...Sarah Webb reveals "How Emily Got Promoted" -- and how a little bit of luck can make a working girl's day.

Plus other wonderful entries from
