I consider it a privilege -- although it came as a big surprise to me to learn about it -- that I have written one of the very few novels that exist about the Irish in San Francisco. My Father In The Night was published in hard cover by Mercury House in 1991 and in soft cover by Ballantine Books a year or so later.
Little Bridget and The Flames of Hell is a collection of short stories that carries on that theme. Every story has something to do with the relationship between the Irish-Irish and the Irish-Americans in contemporary San Francisco. This continues to be a very active relationship, since immigrant Irish are once again quite evident in this city. The connection between the two groups is sometimes cantankerous, sometimes hilarious and sometimes extremely poignant.
The book is available in print form from Red Room. It is available in digital form from Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, booksamillion.com, et.al.
