Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Charles Fanning’s credentials in the field of Irish-American literature are matchless. His books, essays, and anthologies of Irish-American fiction have established the canon. . . . It is rare to read an anthology with so comprehensive a range of modes and approaches. By such inclusiveness, Fanning shows the creative, critical, and analytical energies of Irish immigrants, their descendants, and those who study the Irish diaspora. Fanning’s juxtaposition of forms and approaches provides an original pattern in which readers can better understand well-established truths, reexamine old assumptions about Irish émigrés, and entertain new perspectives.”—Shaun O’Connell, author of Imagining Boston: A Literary Landscape and Remarkable, Unspeakable New York: A Literary History
