Women and Exile in Contemporary Irish Fiction examines how contemporary Irish authors have taken up the history of the Irish woman migrant. It situates these writers' work in relation to larger discourses of exile in the Irish literary tradition and examines how they engage with the complex history of Irish emigration.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"As her study, Women and Exile in Contemporary Irish Fiction, amply shows, women are no longer marginal characters but protagonists who provide rich commentary on emigration-related social concerns including reproductive rights, censorship, religious and class identities, whiteness, and belonging. ... The book is engagingly written and constitutes a compelling and important contribution to contemporary Irish literary criticism." (Katrin Urschel, Canadian Journal of Irish Studies, Vol. 39 (2), 2016)
