Dolly West's Kitchen, Paperback Book

Dolly West's Kitchen Paperback


Two volumes from the Irish playwright Frank McGuinness: a major play on love, family, and war as well as stunning translations of two classics Set in Buncrana, County Donegal, Ireland, during World War II, "Dolly West's Kitchen" is centered on a family struggling to come to terms not only with the effects of war on their country and their family but also with their own inability to respond to one another as situations -- and they themselves -- change.

As the characters talk of love, sex, war, the English, de Valera, and the Yanks, "Dolly West's Kitchen" becomes a deeply moving evocation of the fantasy and the reality that was Ireland in the 1940s, filled with the richness of character and sense of place that have always marked Frank McGuinness's writing.
