Gone to Amerikay is a wonderful book to look through. The art by Colleen Doran (creator of the extensive fantasy series A Distant Soil) is exquisite-there is simply no other word for it. The colours added by José Villarrubia couldn’t be improved on. So, for lovers of graphic arts, this book is worth having for that reason alone. The author is Derek McCulloch who has not compromised on content to appeal to young readers.

Other authors: Colleen Doran (Illustrator), Jared K. Fletcher (Illustrator), Jose Villarrubia (Illustrator). Weaving three generations of storyline together, Gone to Amerikay showcases the lives of Irish immigrants in New York City. Beautifully illustrated, it is a funky mash-up of ghost story, history lesson and romance. Personally, I would have liked a glossary of Gaelic words, and the use of historical clippings to strengthen the historic aspects and shed light on the named historic figures.

McCulloch ties it all together in 2010, where we learn the way Lewis is connected to Johnny and the way Johnny is connected to Ciara. I Strongly Recommend Gone to Amerikay, if you must know. It has two very nice love stories, an interesting mystery, and while I don't think it's as important in describing the "immigrant experience" as the pull quotes on the back do, I do think it's a good view of America over the centuries and the way people relate to each other in the United States.

book by Derek McCulloch. This sweeping, century-spanning graphic novel explores the vivid history of Irish migrs to New York City via three intertwined tales, from a penniless woman raising a daughter alone in the Five Points slum of 1870, to a struggling young artist drawn to the nascent counterculture of 1960, the year America elected its first Irish-Catholic president.

Gone to Amerikay is a graphic novel set in three time periods, telling three, seemingly independent stories. José Villarrubia’s colours are stunning, as detailed and evocative as Doran’s art, complementing it to give the reader a fully-realised recreation of three different periods of New York. McCulloch’s writing is dense and rewards multiple readings. The whole book has a careful structure, with numerous references to historical characters and events, as well as prominent use of Irish folk songs (see here for references by the writer)
