"Moynihan is not the first to note the shadow that America’s racial experience casts over Ireland, but she deploys it in original and fascinating ways."—Irish University Review

"One of the most impressive aspects of Moynihan’s overall approach is her repeated warning against recasting Irish experience in terms of American debates of race and immigration....her own close readings of Irish texts are similarly enhanced by an attentiveness to the small print of race and immigration in contemporary Ireland."—the Irish Times

"The book is enriched by a wide-ranging sense of the expressive genres in which such difficult questions are aired—not just fiction (the work of Joseph O’Connor and Roddy Doyle) and drama (selected works of Ronan Noone and Daniel O’Kelly), but also films by Jim Sheridan, Neil Jordan, and Eugene Brady whose provenance is as much American by way of Hollywood as it is Irish per se."—New Hibernia Review

"A compelling argument about the role of race in contemporary Irish culture."—Lauren Onkey, author of Blackness and Transatlantic Irish Identity
