"New Writing from Ireland is a showcase for the most invigorating contemporary Irish writers. In this marvellously eclectic collection, Colm Toibin has assembled a rousing throng of voices, including John McGahern, Seamus Heaney, Derek Mahon, Eugene McCabe, Edna O’Brien, John Banville, Frank McGuinness, Deirdre Madden, Tom Paulin, Anne Enright, Paul Durcan, Roddy Doyle and Dermot Bolger - to name but a few. It is as stimulating to read all in one sitting as it is to dip into and it amply demonstrates the rich variety of gifted writers currently emanating from Ireland."
