The Irish Connection and other Stories is a collection, each short story self -contained, yet interconnected and focused on the "Irish" experience. Michael Mulligan flees the famine with the wife of a tyrannical Anglo Irish landord; a century and a half later, Declan Mulligan researches the legacy of his mysterious great great grandfather, the same Michael Mulligan: cavalry officer at Gettysburg, secret assassin and friend of Edwin Booth. Between these bookends appear other stories: two sisters survive the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, a young black woman explores her Irish roots in Ireland, a brilliant female writer faces cancer, and an ailing Jewish lawyer has a magical moment in the Aran Islands.
