Eilis Ni Dhuibhne asked 21 writers who were born in mid twentieth century Ireland, north and south, to write about their literary lives and careers. They tell it like it really was and is.
Collectively, thse vivid, original essays provide us with a fascinating picture of Ireland's literary landscape from multiple female points of view.
Poets, fiction writers, playwrights, impresarios, writers in Irish and English, have written accounts which are funny, tragic, philosophical, angry, but all are lively, stunning, honest testimonies of the writing life during a pivotal period in the history of Irish literature.
