The Irish have always had a knack for telling wonderful stories, and their fantastic ability has been recognized from early Gaelic times. For centuries, stories of all kinds have been offered to friends and strangers alike as a form of entertainment and communication. Today in Ireland, the short story is revered even above the novel. Hearing these magnificent stories, we become aware of more than just the humor and travail of a small island. In some magical, mysterious fashion, as we listen, we all become Irish in a grand, tragi-comedy of life, and these stories show us what makes the human being the special creature he is.

Volume I includes Homesickness and Julia Cahill's Curse by George Moore; Innocence by Sean O'Faolain; The Fairy Goose by Liam O'Flaherty; The Sphinx without a Secret by Oscar Wilde; Adventures of a Strolling Player by Oliver Goldsmith; The Weaver's Grave by Seamus O'Kelly; My Oedipus Complex by Frank O'Connor; The Boarding House by James Joyce; and The Leaping Trout by David Hogan.
