Something a bit different this week:
LOVE AND OTHER STORIES by Lucille Redmond
Love is a collection of short stories, ranging from Elsewhen, in which an alternative Muslim Ireland is the home to a doomed love affair, to Wolf and Water, a Stone Age adventure, to And the Green Sea Ebbs Away, among colonists and natives on a sea planet, to the title story, Love, a murder story, to Our Fenian Dead, in which an Irish revolutionary tries to make a new life in the Wild West, to Affect and Repression, a psychoanalytic comedy.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST by Oscar Wilde
This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, “that name which inspires absolute confidence.”
Wilde’s effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.
