Staff Review
Helping to redress the exclusion of Northern Irish voices from the Irish literary scene, Sinead Gleeson has edited a glorious new collection of stories written by women from the North of Ireland. Featuring authors such as Rosa Mullholland, who was writing at the turn of the 20th century, to contemporary greats such as Lucy Caldwell, these stories will appeal to a multitude of tastes. Whilst the backdrop of The Troubles is ever present these stories go beyond questions of religon or geopolitics; they deal with the concept of myth, the body and personal politics with wit, warmth and compassion. The Glass Shore successfully writes the experience of Northern Irish women into the emerging narrative of what it means to be a woman in this country.
