Barnacle Soup is a collection of amazing little folk stories from the west of Ireland that everyone should have to hold and love

Barnacle Soup is a collection of amazing little folk stories from the west of Ireland that everyone should have to hold and love. I sent for my copy years ago and treasure it. Stories about wakes and old folks who survive on very little are so charming you want to grab your passport and go to Dingle. The book is also a model of how to make a book, with linocuts to help you to visualize the stories. Each story is a little treasure. It's worth every penny.

This is a collection of very short stories (sometimes only a few hundred words long) recounted by an old guy from County Sligo and massaged into written form. Some of them are mysterious, some of them very funny, some are wise and humane, and others simply offer little insights into a way of life rapidly vanishing. The whole thing will take you about 90 minutes to read, and I can't think of a better way to pass a train journey than this little gem.
