by Bonnie McCune
Set in the early 1970s, An Irish Episode immerses an American woman in the life and times of a struggling Irish musician. Carol, a disillusioned refugee from a high-pressure advertising agency in the US, thinks she’d like to swap the materialism around her at home for the unpretentious and relaxed approach presented by folk singer James Kevin Flarity. The attraction of his unpolished candour, his modest life style, and his straightforward desire for Carol, so different from the slick savoir faire of the “suits” Carol meets back home, provides a definite bonus to pursue a relationship.
“ Once again Bonnie McCune has written a witty novel full of the emotions and turmoil of life. She approaches sensitive human circumstances with care and assurance making the characters real and believable. ”– Victoria Pitts Caine
