Whos Irish?: Stories by Gish Jen

Sparkling--a gently satiric look at the American Dream and its fallout on those who pursue it.--The New York Times With dazzling wit and compassion, Gish Jen--author of the highly acclaimed novelsTypical AmericanandMona in the Promised Land--looks at ambition and compromise at centurys end and finds that much of the action is as familiar--and as strange--as the things we know to be most deeply true about ourselves. The stories inWhos Irish?show us the children of immigrants looking wonderingly at their parents efforts to assimilate, while the older generation asks how so much selfless hard work on their part can have yielded them offspring whod sooner drop out of life than succeed at it.
