* There is a strong market for books written by or about extraordinary Irish people as seen by the success of the bestsellers Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt (Scribner, 1996) and Are You Somebody? by Nuala O'Faolain (Holt, 1998).* The success of Educating Esme by Esme Codell (Algonquin, 1999) and Dangerous Minds by Louanne Johnson (St. Martin's, 1995) demonstrates that stories about inspirational teachers overcoming odds in the classroom appeal to a wide audience.
