about

This book considers the widespread treatment of traumatic memory in Irish fiction of the past thirty-five years. It focuses on both trauma fiction and the historical novel, and the way certain novelists looked to early events in twentieth century Irish history to engage the recent political violence in Northern Ireland beginning in 1969.
