Heather Ingman discusses Irish womens writing across all major genres both literary and popular, including childrens writing, crime fiction, and in the discussion of the writing of the Celtic Tiger era, the phenomenal success of Irish chick lit. The topic of Irish womens writing is still a neglected one, with womens novels too often sidelined, despite the international recognition gained by prize-winning novels by Anne Enright and Emma Donoghue among others.

Describing the circumstances of womens writing lives, as well as the themes with which they deal, Irish Womens Fiction is written in an accessible style and is the first ever single-volume survey of Irish womens writing and writers, bringing Irish women writers back in to the canon of Irish literature.
