"Hilarious, heartbreaking diaspora tales"

Accusations of inauthenticity are picked apart here in discussions which touch upon what is authentic, what is new, what evolves and what changes. The book offers a way of examining where these writers and thinkers stand in relation to a shared heritage and past, in a continuously changing present”... I Wouldn’t Start from Here is a dense volume, packed with more informative essays than I can mention as well as stories from McKay, McCrory and French... Irish men and women from that silent generation live and breathe on the pages of this brilliant ground-breaking book.
