Strange new Dublin Mar 30, 2007
"New Dubliners" is a collection of short stories by Irish writers. It was put together to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Joyce's "Dubliners." When Joyce was alive, Dublin was the armpit of Europe. Poor and dirty and strewn with tenements, Joyce captures this world perfectly.
One hundred years later and Dublin has the fastest growing economy in Europe and for the first time in its history has to deal with immigrants--people actually want to come to the small island. Like "Dubliners," "New Dubliners" is a series of snapshots of the city. Rich with new money, poor, riding horses and fighting for jobs or wives who just want to get out. "New Dubliners" is a must read for any lover of short stories. It's also essential to learning about this strange and vibrant city.
