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.
