Flann O'Brien : a portrait of the artist as a young post-modernist by Keith Hopper( Book )

This study reconfigures Flann O'Brien as a highly subversive writer within a rich and fertile literary landscape: indisputably Irish yet distinctly post-modern. It identifies 'The Third Policeman' as a subversive intellectual satire and situates it as one of the earliest examples of post-modernist fiction

The collected short stories by Dermot Healy( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
"Dermot Healy wrote intricate and innovative short stories that, along with works by Neil Jordan and Desmond Hogan, relaunched the Irish short story tradition. Set in small-town Ireland and the equally suffocating confines of the Irish expat communities of 1970s London, Healy's stories show compassion toward the marginalized and the dispossessed. Gathering all of Healy's stories together for the first time, this collection includes the long prose-drama "Before the Off" and Healy's final short works, "Along the Lines" and "Images"
Fighting with shadows, or, Sciamachy by Dermot Healy( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 42 libraries worldwide
"Fighting with Shadows tells of violently sundered geographical borders, of maddening religious differences, of the anguished gaps between people as they struggle to find each other, and of how the dead reside among its inhabitants long after they've passed. The imagination's encounter with reality registers Dermot Healey's relentless fascination with the way things are seen and with the things themselves, or the "erotica of little things." A realist account and nightmarish fable, Fighting with Shadows is critical to the history of modern Irish fiction"--

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Writing the sky : observations and essays on Dermot Healy ( Book )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"Gallagher, Timothy O'Grady, Glenn Patterson, Patrick McCabe, and many others - offer creative reflections on Healy's work, while literary critics provide a wide-ranging foundation for future Healy scholarship. In total, over forty contributors. Writing the Sky: Observations and Essays on Dermot Healy is a comprehensive collection of critical essays, memoirs, poetry, and other writerly responses devoted to the life and work of the late Dermot Healy (1947-2014). Healy was an accomplished poet, short story writer, novelist, playwright, and editor, and so these essays and observations address the entire range of his eclectic and exciting oeuvre. While paying due tribute to the memory of the man himself, the collection primarily seeks to establish a series of important critical perspectives through which Healy's writings can be properly viewed and assessed. Contemporary writers and poets - including Colm Tóibín, Neil Jordan, Aidan Higgins, Alannah Hopkin, Kevin Barry, Annie Proulx, Michael Longley, Roddy Doyle, Tessors from more than a dozen countries provide insight into one of Ireland's most powerful and unique literary voices. This collection is absolutely crucial for everyone interested in the work of Dermot Healy and for all devotees of Irish literature" --
