Irish. Jazz. New York. IRA. FANTASTIC!!!

Lots of fun for anyone who likes big, overstuffed novels with plenty of plot and characters. The reviewer who compared it to "Kavalier and Clay" had it right: if this book isn't quite as magical, it is plenty entertaining. (It's also a bit like "Golden Hill" and "Manhattan Beach".)
