Sweet Liberty, which was praised by the Glasgow Herald as “a fabulously droll, unsentimental, and craic-laden report on the haunts of the Gael,” features “vivid accounts of the Irish immigrant experience,” as well as a “rich exploration of the intertwined roots of American music,” as readers follow O’Connor’s travels in Dublins from New Hampshire to California (“Sweet Liberty”).
