Traces the treatment of trauma and recovery in the twenty-firstcentury Irish novel.

"An invaluable guide to the representational power and capacity of trauma narratives, and how those possibilities are harnessed by the leading writers of twenty-first-century, post-Celtic Tiger Ireland."—Emilie Pine, University College Dublin

Her eloquent and persuasive readings of six representative contemporary novels highlight the ways in which these novels respond to, delineate, and navigate both personal and societal trauma."—Susan Cahill, author of Irish Literature in the Celtic Tiger Years: Gender, Bodies, Memory

"Beautifully written, it is an accomplished and insightful piece of literary criticism, providing a comprehensive look at some of the most groundbreaking and important fiction produced by Irish writers in the twenty-first century."—Claire Bracken, author of Irish Feminist Futures
