Product description


"A nice big fat value-for-money anthology with an extremely broad range." --Margie Cronin, "Refractory Girl

From the Publisher

WINNER Anutech Poetry prize 1994 Awarded 1988 ACT Creative Arts Fellowship for Literature.

"Wee Girls is filled with spirited writers..." - Kathy Kituai, Muse "A remarkable collection" – Phillip Adams, The Irish Voice "I WAS IN CANADA THE FIRST TIME I heard that there are only two types of people in this world: those who are Irish and those who want to be. Wee Girls is a welcome addition to the field of contemporary Irish women’s writing’ – Rebecca Pelan, Overland "Irish heritage has an enormous influence on many female writers… The writers contribute to the preservation of Irish heritage and invite other generations of women to revel in this rich legacy" – Frank Oshea, Canberra Times

A few of the writers would be well known to readers of Irish Fiction and poetry – Maeve Binchy, Medbh McKuckian, Eavan Boland, Rita Ann Higgins, Ailbhe Smyth and Linda Anderson.

Women writing from an Irish perspective in Australia, Ireland, UK, US, Canada and New Zealand. A moving and often amusing collection of fiction, poetry and autobiography by top-selling, award winning, writers. Tales of blood and bloodlines - Irish grandmothers, ma's and da's, there are the stories, the music, the whispering dreams and the voices that ache to be heard.

Ancient history, myth and legend are balanced with the fragility and tenuousness of contemporary society, peace and exile. There is a wilderness and daring in the voices of this anthology. They call up legions out of the sea and set fires alight. They hang out over garden fences, move restlessly, are dotey, beaming, weeping, powerful.

Wee Girls is in keeping with a number of books on Irish women writers. In particular, DeSalvo et al, Territories of the Voice: Contemporary Stories by Irish Women Writers and Casey and Casey’s Stories by Contemporary Irish Women.

Contributors include: Lisa Anderson, Pam Lewis (US), Nuala Archer, Medbh McGuckian, Maeve Binchy, Siobhán McHugh, Eavan Boland, Helene Mulkerns (US), Bub Bridger, Lizz Murphy, Joan Bridget (Canada), Sue Reidy, Colleen Burke, Francesca Rendle-Short, Mary Daly (US), Bronwyn Rodden, Mary Dorcey, Robyn Rowland, Rita Ann Higgins, Ailbhe Smyth, Jill Jones and Cherry Smyth
