Over the last decade, Ireland has undergone massive change. Traditional values have been uprooted; established notions of Irishness overturned; rural and urban landscapes altered forever. Dislocation is a collection of eleven stories by writers who have come to prominence during this turbulent time. These stories journey away from conventional "Irishness" and create a new order as they move through worlds sometimes familiar, sometimes alien, sordid, even violent. Set in Dublin, America, the Irish Midlands, London, and central Europe, they provide an extraordinary array of insights, anxieties, triumphs, and failures in the lives of their characters. The writers include Tom Humphries, Claire Keegan, John MacKenna, Aidan Mathews, Molly McCloskey, Blanaid McKinney, Mary Morrissy, Elis Ni Dhuibhne, Joseph O'Neill, Sean O'Reilly, and Keith Ridgway.
