Instead of a Holiday: Ireland
Where shall we go today?
While the world deals with the pandemic, many aspects of our normal lives are on hold. Holidays in 2020 are likely to be difficult or impossible. With than in mind, we’ve put together a series of ‘instead of a holiday’ book lists. These lists contain novels with a sense of atmosphere and setting to imaginatively transport you to places you can’t currently get to, as well as travel, food and history writing to provide that all-important cultural engagement.
Today: Ireland. Here we tried to stick to the less heard-of, the off-beat and new voices, whilst also including the odd modern classic. Enjoy!
