The Other Irish Tradition (Irish Literature) (Paperback)
The Other Irish Tradition is a colorful anthology celebrating the experimental strain in Irish literature, from Laurence Sterne and Jonathan Swift to the bleeding-edge of contemporary writing. It juxtaposes work from such heralded masters as Joyce, Beckett, and Flann O'Brien with startling and innovative work from young contemporary writers such as Mike McCormack, June Caldwell, Anakana Schofield, and Kevin Breathnach. The anthology presents an intoxicating mixture of Irish writing at its most playful and transgressive, from colossal authors to lesser-known but fascinating ones, offering fresh perspectives and a provocative reshuffling of the literary canon.
