About the Author:

Kersti Tarien Powell studied at St. Hugh's College, Oxford University.

Review:

“This primer glosses ‘the best and the best-known’ writers of Irish fiction... Brief biographies and plot summaries provide convenient shortcuts for those with no knowledge of Ireland or anything Irish....[Powell’s] book will encourage interest both in the works of the writers she discusses and in the history and criticism she lists in her useful bibliography. Recommended.” –CHOICE, March 2005
