The Other Irish Tradition


Irish writing is currently enjoying a renaissance. Strange, original talents are blossoming, wielding styles and perspectives as variant as the inspirations they bring to bear on their work. The Other Irish Tradition seeks to situate this recent flowering within the centuries-long efforts of Irish writers to experiment and to innovate, to make the form of the novel new and strange again. From Laurence Sterne to Flann O’Brien and beyond, this anthology presents both highly familiar and relatively obscure writers from across the history of Irish fiction, offering a fresh perspective on and a provocative reshuffling of the literary canon.
