Goodbye Yeats and O’Neill: Farce in Contemporary Irish and Irish-American Narratives
The book is a study of works by more than a dozen authors, including Roddy Doyle, Nuala O’Faolain, Colum McCann, William Kennedy, Alice McDermott, Mary Gordon and Thomas Kelly. The study argues that farce has been a major mode of recent Irish and Irish-American fiction and memoir-a primary indicator of the state of both Irish and Irish-American cultures in the early twenty-first century.
