Though the short story is often regarded as central to the Irish canon, this text was the first comprehensive study of the genre for many years. Heather Ingman traces the development of the modern short story in Ireland from its beginnings in the nineteenth century to the present day. Her study analyses the material circumstances surrounding publication, examining the role of magazines and editors in shaping the form. Ingman incorporates recent critical thinking on the short story, traces international connections, and gives a central part to Irish women's short stories. Each chapter concludes with a detailed analysis of key stories from the period discussed, featuring Joyce, Edna O'Brien and John McGahern, among others. With its comprehensive bibliography and biographies of authors, this volume will be a key work of reference for scholars and students both of Irish fiction and of the modern short story as a genre.
She's all alone; lost. She drinks her problems away. She hides herself with makeup. Hanging out with friends she would never hangout before. Going to clubs and getting lost in the music and hooking up with strangers. She's a girl she never thought she would become. She fell apart and It's all because of Vince. Before Vince she was a straight A student. She was a dreamer but now what is she? She reminisces the past searching for hope. She's losing her mind all because she is keeping one little secret; hidden and it all has to do with Vince. So what is that secret she is hiding and can she get herself back together?
