A splendid collection. —Antioch Review

“The sexes are as separate in Ireland as in any country in the Western world. Yet, whatever the consequences for Irish women . . . silence is not one of them. This display of Irish women’s writing is a manifestation of the unity of Ireland. From North to South, their voices are rich, witty, earthy, magnificent.”—Brenda Maddox, author of Nora: A Biography of Nora Joyce

“Many voices have defined the Irish experience, but one voice was never heard: the woman’s voice. This collection proves that it is a voice worth hearing. . . . Highly recommended.”—Library Journal

“Representative of a literary outpouring by Irish women since the 1960s, these stories are exquisitely realized in a wide range of styles, from realism through satire—elegiac, experimental, lyric, folkish.”—San Francisco Review of Books

“Short stories have always been the Irish forte. . . . Now this realm has been inherited by dozens of fine women writers. . . . Three or four stories are worth this book on their own, and several moved me to tears—of laughter as well as of pain.”—San Francisco Chronicle
