Irish Ghost Stories
5 journalers for this copy...
From the back cover:
"The irish have a long and impressive tradition of ghost storytelling reaching back to Gaelic tales of the banshees. David Marcus has gathered together a ghostly cast more inclined to twentieth century methods of haunting, from the spirit who taps out SOS signals on central-heating pipes to the woman who does her spectral knitting on the screen of an unplugged television set."

Und wieder auf Reisen
Find a more detailed review in my blog (in German only).
This book is part of my "1 year of my life = 1 country = 5 books"-Challenge (4th book for Ireland).
It seems just like my cup of tea; some of the stories are "old friends"; I will really enjoy reading... and re-reading them!
I will ask for Pinkydinky's address...
I particularly liked "Hand in Glove", by Elizabeth Bowen (I am currently looking for some more short stories by her), and "A Pair of Muddy Shoes", by Lennox Robinson.
I also liked "The Captain in the Pipes", by Joseph Hone, "The Theft", by Jennifer Johnston, "Rise up, my Love, and Come away", by Patrick Boyle, "The Birth of Laughter", byu Desmond Heger, "Rich and Strange", by Peter Somerville, and "A Private Ghost" by Joyce Cary (the mixture of children and ghosts always work, as Henry James well knew...)
I must highlight the very funny "Saint Bakeoven", by Eric Cross, and the very original "A Ghost Story", by Mary Beckett, with its use of new technologies...
It will soon be on its way to Pinkydinky. Thanks for sharing...
