"Stumbling across a clue to the legendary third pillar of Hercules, Delilah Dirk and Selim embark on an Indiana Jones-style caper that pits them against a ruthless enemy and forces her to team up with rival Jason Merrick."--Publisher's description
Synge and Edwardian Ireland( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text uses JM Synge's plays, prose, and photography to explore the cultural life of Edwardian Ireland. By emphasizing less familiar contexts, including the rise of a local celebrity culture, the arts and crafts movement, and Irish classical music, it shows how Irish folk culture intersected with the new networks of mass communication
Representing the Troubles : texts and images, 1970-2000( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the second half of the twentieth century, Ireland experienced thirty years in which the political status of Northern Ireland was challenged by numerous acts of violence. Since the signing of the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement in 1998 it has been widely sensed that an era has passed in Irish history. Now seems accordingly an auspicious time to begin an assessment of how the period of the Troubles was represented in literature, theatre, film and television drama. This collection of essays considers representations of the Troubles in these varied genres and includes lectures given at the Royal Irish Academy by writers Glenn Patterson, Anne Devlin and Colm Toibin."--Jacket
Irish crime fiction by Brian Cliff( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the recent expansion of Ireland's literary tradition to include home-grown crime fiction. It surveys the wave of books that use genre structures to explore specifically Irish issues such as the Troubles and the rise and fall of the Celtic Tiger, as well as Irish experiences of human trafficking, the supernatural, abortion, and civic corruption. These novels are as likely to address the national regulation of sexuality through institutions like the Magdalene Laundries as they are to follow serial killers through the American South or to trace international corporate conspiracies. This study includes chapters on Northern Irish crime fiction, novels set in the Republic, women protagonists, and transnational themes, and discusses Irish authors' adaptations of a well-loved genre and their effect on assumptions about the nature of Irish literature
