The Irish Face in America profiles a vibrant cross section of Irish Americans and their contributions to every aspect of society. Intimate color portraits are accompanied by personal accounts from each subject. Several well-known figures are included: film stars Martin Sheen, Ed Burns, and Bridget Moynahan; Irish dance legend Michael Flatley of Riverdance; television personality and producer Merv Griffin; and pro golfer Mark O'Meara among them. The stories span all ages and walks of life, and capture the richness and heritage of the Irish-American experience. Essays by Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark, Terry Golway, Patricia Harty, and Don Keough explore the question of what it is to be an Irish American - a subculture with enormous pride in its heritage, deeply rooted in tradition and culture yet utterly modern and ever changing. Bestselling author Pete Hamill provides a memorable introduction.
