The first Irish writer I ever fell in love with was Frank McCourt. His memoir, Angela’s Ashes, read like a novel with its terrible but beautiful setting, deft handling of the themes of religion and poetry, and carefully but lovingly drawn characters.
I am crazy about descriptive passages in novels. The ones I tend to keep are the ones that offer powerful visual imagery.
