Comentario del autor: Irish Olympic hero Declan Swift visits Chicago, decides to stay and becomes a true Irish American success story. After years as a newspaper sports columnist, he founds a sports magazine and begins accumulating a fortune followed by problems. Unwittingly, the famous British biographer, Peter Molloy, hired to write a history of the magazine for it's 40th anniversary, is thrust into the role of sleuth in solving Declan's problems. Molloy is aided by the comely lawyer, Marla Wojciekowsi whose heart often dims her perspective. An urban tale of jealousy and greed, sex and nobility from high rise office suites in Chicago to the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, to the green meadows of County Limerick in Ireland is rhythmic entertaining prose.
A Book About Limerick calls for a 'limerick' or two
With the number of Irish Themes in current books...
Irish books are to some quite demeaning, With oppressive tales often blaspheming
Now MAGAZINE has arrived, Heralding success, wealth and pride
And the readers will find it redeeming!
What MAGAZINE is all about...
To Chicago moved Declan Swift, Then to Limerick came his magnanimous gift.
His intentions were noble The gift's impact global,
And it settled a long family rift.
