This book uncovers a new genre of `post-Agreement literature', consisting of a body of texts - fiction, poetry and drama - by Northern Irish writers who grew up during the Troubles but published their work in the aftermath of the Good Friday Agreement. In an attempt to demarcate the literary-aesthetic parameters of the genre, the book proposes a selective revision of postcolonial theories on `liminality' through a subset of concepts such as `negative liminality', `liminal suspension' and `liminal permanence.' These conceptual interventions, as the readings demonstrate, help articulate how the Agreement's rhetorical negation of the sectarian past and its aggressive neoliberal campaign towards a `progressive' future breed new forms of violence that produce liminally suspended subject positions.
