Few people who have been slave to an addiction as vicious, as destructive, and as unrelenting as Colin Broderick’s have lived to tell their tale. Fewer still have emerged from the darkest depths of alcoholism—from the perpetual fistfights and muggings, car crashes and blackouts—to tell the harrowing truth about the modern Irish immigrant experience.






After four years of work I’m honored to announce that my third book: “The Writing Irish of New York” is finally available for purchase in hardcover.
If you’d like to pre-order your copy (with a five dollar discount), Please go to Lavender Ink

"...the personal essays in The Writing Irish are testament not only to an enduring Irish literary culture, but also to the simple power of perseverance."

Thanks again for all your continued support.

Colin Broderick grew up in Northern Ireland during the period of heightened tension and violence known as the Troubles. Broderick's Catholic family lived in County Tyrone --the heart of rebel country. In That’s That, he brings us into this world and delivers a deeply personal account of what it was like to come of age in the midst of a war that dragged on for over two decades.
