Summary: An Anchor Paperback Original An intelligent, sophisticated cross-section of Irish short fiction, ideal for casual readers and classrooms alike, that showcases where Irish writers are now, as well as where they are headed. The contemporary Irish short story, perhaps even more than the novel, provides vital critical clues and guideposts for anyone interested in twentieth-century Irish writing--the Irish, after all, have always been a nation of storytellers, and the current practioner
s of this ancient tradition are in the process of exploding and rediefining the form. The Anchor Book of New Irish Writingfeatures a group of writers whose influence is already strongly felt in Irish literature, and who deserve to be better known in American, among them Aidan Matthews and Anne Enright. The stories themselves are beautifully written, well-chosen by the editors, and presented in such a way as to guide readers through the fascinating dramatic, structural, and technical themes explored by contemporary Irish stories. The result is a rich sampling of these writers including the work of more familiar ones-from Elizabetth Bowen to Neil Jordan-a collection that promises to introduce the new classics of Irish literature to a wider audience. List of contributors: Elizabeth Bowen John Banville Desmond Hogan Bernard McLaverty Cherry Smyth Clare Boylan Rita Kelly Maeve Binchy Anne Devlin Evelyn Conlon Emma Donoghue Aiden Matthews Anne Enright Patrick McCabe Rohan Sheenan Michael O'Loughlin Eamonn Sweeney Marcy Dorcey Ellis Ní Dhuibhne Joseph O'Connor Colum McCann Neil Jordan
