Congrats, Nuala - lovely write-up!

Also, I've a feeling I've read 'Madonna Irlanda' - was it in The Stinging Fly ages ago?

That is deservedly high praise- Grace Paley? Nice !Congratulations, really enjoying/savouring the book meself.
My favourite was the one in India but now I love 'Cowboy and Nellie' and 'Before losing the valise, but mostly after' Jayney mac I still imagine if it were my stuff in the suitcase!

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Thanks y'all. I'm v happy with it. I feel she 'got' the book and that's always pleasing.

It was a good review and obvious that she enjoyed it. Great opening line too.

Hi Nuala,

Read that fab review in the Irish Times yesterday and am looking forward to getting my hands on the book, it sounds terrific. Writing short fiction at moment so its great to see another Irish anthology. Will tweet the review link to my writing and reading buddies. Well done and hope it goes really well.

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Thanks a million Alison! Going over now to look at your blog.

Congrats on the new work - what a great review really insightful.

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Thank you AF - I was happy with it. It's so cool for a stranger to read and get it. Yay!

Hooray, Nuala: excellent review. Insightful and thoughtful - makes one want to read the stories oneself (will be doing so). And as for the Brendan Kennelly mention, you're in the best possible company! Best, Min x.

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Thanks Min - exalted company indeed. I must read it again. I read it twice the day it was published and have been avoiding it since. Even though I know it's good! The bizarre behaviour of writers...
