Mel Ulm over at The Reading Life blog has posted a review of Mother America as part of his ongoing focus on Irish short story writers. He zones in on several of the stories and says: "I not long ago read a number of short stories by George Moore, who I now regard as among the truly great short story writers of the world, and I saw much the same power and great understanding of people found in the stories in Mother America."
It's always interesting to see which stories people warm to and Mel seems to have really enjoyed one of the two linked historical stories 'My Name is William Clongallen' (which first appeared in Dedalus Press's Shine On anthology).
The (physical) book has been delayed a little at the printers but I should have a copy in my paw next week before I go to the short story festival in Croatia. Here's hoping :)
