Interview: Rites of Passage - Five Irish Stories, by author Thomas J. Rice
By The Authors Show
Interview with author Thomas J. Rice. Told with sympathy and humor, the five Irish stories in Thomas J. Rice's Rites of Passage are of homeland lost and recovered, of fierce loyalties, of dashed and regained hopes, of betrayals and humiliations, of boys making their perilous journeys to manhood, of single mothers eking an existence out of stony soil, of the foibles and follies of small town communities, of grown men escaping the long shadow of childhood trauma.
