I'll Drop You a Line: A Life with David Marcus

Ita Daly

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

David Marcus's unerring eye for a good short story launched the careers of innumerable Irish fiction writers, including Neil Jordan, Dermot Bolger, Deirdre Madden and Clare Keegan. Marcus (1924-2009), a Cork-born Jew, was a novelist and short story writer as well as an anthologist and editor.

He established the weekly New Irish Writing pages in the Irish Press in 1969 and was the newspaper's books editor for many years, making an incalculable contribution to Irish literary life.

David Marcus was a late but fervent convert to marriage - a 'mixed marriage' to the writer Ita Daly - and fatherhood, to his daughter Sarah. I'll Drop You a Line, his habitual closing words in conversation with his authors, is Ita Daly's story of David and her life with him, his final years of illness and the grief of his death.
