Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Nerd Cactus followers! You probably don’t really need any help with the drink recommendations this weekend, but I figured we could all raise a glass to the many prolific Irish authors out there in the literary world.
Yes, James Joyce is one of them, and no, I won’t be suggesting that you read Ulysses. I mean… You can if you want, but nobody here is going to be held responsible for your choices.
My personal favorite of the classic Irish writers is Oscar Wilde. Jonathon Swift is a very close second. So go on and grab a copy of The Importance of Being Earnest or A Modest Proposal (or really anything by any Irish author) and raise a glass of Jameson – or Guinness depending on your preference – to the Emerald Isle!
