About the Author

Susan Cahill is Assistant Professor in the School of Canadian Irish Studies, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.


With the Celtic Tiger well and truly dead, it's time for thepost-mortem to begin, and this book represents a significant contribution tothat process. Susan Cahill's study of a number of important novelists offers anoverview of an extraordinary period in modern Irish history, as well as closeanalyses of some of the most sensitive artistic responses to the island'schanging fortunes. In teasing out the complex interplay between time, memory andthe body, Irish Literature in the Celtic Tiger Years challenges thetheoretical parameters of contemporary Irish cultural criticism, while alsoproviding a compelling vision of the vicissitudes of modern Irish identity. -- Gerry Smyth, Reader in Cultural History, Liverpool John Moores University, USA
