Through an analysis of representative texts, Kennedy-Andrews explores fiction from or about the North from the outbreak of the Troubles in 1969 to the present day, but with the bulk of the study covers recent fiction by new young writers born in the 1960s that grew up during the Troubles.
The book concludes with an extensive bibliography, useful biographical notes on the individual novelists, and a chronology of important events.
Elmer Kennedy-Andrews lectures in English at the University of Ulster, Coleraine.
