Synopsis: A leading journal of Irish Studies, New Hibernia Review opens each issue with a personal essay. For the first time, here is a selection of the finest of these, of which four have been recognized as ""Notable Essays of the Year"" in Best American Essays. This engaging collection sheds light on the perplexing state of being an Irish American-though the question is usually posed in deflected ways. Often deeply personal, each account in Extended Family: Essays on Being Irish American from New Hibernia Review tackles this question with verve; the conclusions range from the piquant, to the humorous, to the bittersweet. This book marks a welcome re-evaluation of the Irish Diaspora that is sure to challenge and stimulate our current understandings. James Silas Rogers has previously co-edited After the Flood: Irish America, 1945 - 1960 and published a poetry chapbook, Sundogs. He is the editor of New Hibernia Review at the University of St. Thomas, and served as president of the American Conference for Irish Studies from 2009 to 2011. ""This elegantly written volume, gathered from many voices, shows that ""Irish"" is in the eyes of the beholder.""-Irish Music & Dance Assoc. April 2013 ""Luminous meditations on Irish life, heritage and experience... Extended Family succeeds as well as it does by offering personal as well as political readings of contemporary Irish American experience.""--Irish Voice

Review: This elegantly written volume, gathered from many voices, shows that "Irish" is in the eyes of the beholder. --Irish Music & Dance Assoc.

Luminous meditations on Irish life, heritage and experience. . . Extended Family succeeds as well as it does by offering personal as well as political readings of contemporary Irish American experience. --Irish Voice

Offers a compilation of insights into the endeavors of Irish Americans and their own definition of self. This book locates the personal within the historical in an effort to show the complexities of the Irish, if not the general immigrant experience in America, that home isn't always clearly defined. --Irish Literary Supplement
