Welsh writing has recently undergone an international renaissance—however, very little of this attention has been directed toward women’s fiction. Aimed at a general audience with a broad array of interests, Contemporary Irish and Welsh Women’s Fiction is the first comparative study of fiction by late-twentieth and twenty-first-century women writers from Ireland, North Ireland, and Wales. This volume breaks new ground in its exploration of rich and critically-deserving texts that have previously been marginalized from much of Welsh and Irish literary fiction in English.
M. Wynn Thomas, University of Wales Swansea

“The methodology . . . is one perfectly suited to the present state of Welsh studies.  In other words, the strategy will be to bring Welsh writing to wider attention by placing it in the context not of one but of two powerful, well established and enduringly popular fields of study – that of Irish Studies and of Women’s Writing.”
