About this book

This book argues that the outskirts of cities have become spaces for a new literature beyond boundaries of traditional notions of nation, class, and gender. Includes discussions of Booker Prize winners Roddy Doyle and James Kelman.

Reviews

"A welcome and useful study of a group of writers in need of more complex critical attention. By including both Irish and Scottish writers in the same study-and writers from both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland-McGlynn enacts the challenge to national boundaries that her study uncovers. The potential impact of such a work on Irish literary studies is especially strong; too often, Irish literature is only studied within nationalist parameters." - Lauren Onkey, Associate Professor of English, Ball State University

"McGlynn's book is an excellent choice for the series New Directions in Irish and Irish American Literature, edited by Claire Culleton. It makes many important moves in this arena, not the least of which is its reconfiguration of what one might call the Celtic fringe, 'with literature as a key crossover" (Maley 205) . . . I am grateful to have this thoughtful and careful work, which in forging yet new ground in this comparative filed of Scottish-Irish studies, brings understudied authors into view and provides an important model for talking about class in contemporary literatures more generally." - James Joyce Literary Supplement
