However, for all of his acclaim, there is an extraordinary dearth of criticism on this prominent Irish writer. To date no full-length studies of Tóibín's work have been published in Ireland or overseas, and only a few short essays have appeared in specialist academic journals and generla surveys of recent Irish literature. This collection ... provides an illuminating exploration of many of the themes and concerns which have engaged Tóibín ever since the publication of his first book, Walking along the border (1987) ... The book also includes a lengthy interview of Tóibín conducted by his former Magill associate, Fintan O'Toole.--From publisher description."@en
