well read: Tales From The Blue Stacks

A collection of short stories written by American Robert Bernen who moved to Ireland in 1970 to try his hand at rearing sheep in the shadow of the remote Blue Stack Mountains in Donegal. Beautifully observed and sympathetically written, the author tells the tales of his rural neighbours who were living simple lives as their families had done for generations before them - a sort of Driving Over Lemons but set in Southern Ireland.
