In a series of critical and biographical essays, "Too Smart to Be Sentimental" offers a feminist literary history of twentieth-century Irish America. This collection introduces the reader to the works of twelve contemporary Irish American women writers, some of whom are well known, such as Joyce Carol Oates, Alice McDermott, and Tess Gallagher, and some of whom are equally deserving of recognition.Each chapter focuses on a particular writer, describes and discusses that writer's most important works, contextualizes the discussion with relevant biographical material, and highlights why the writer is representative of the Irish American literary tradition. "Too Smart to Be Sentimental" - the first critical study of contemporary Irish American women authors - will be invaluable to students and scholars of Irish studies and Irish American literature.
