Rhythms of Writing

This is the first anthropological study of writers, writing and contemporary literary culture. Drawing on the flourishing literary scene in Ireland as the basis for her research, Helena Wulff explores the social world of contemporary Irish writers, examining fiction, novels, short stories as well as journalism.


Discussing writers such as John Banville, Roddy Doyle, Colm Toibin, Frank McCourt, Anne Enright, Deirdre Madden, Eilis Ni Dhuibhne, Colum McCann, David Park, and Joseph OConnor, Wulff reveals how the making of a writer's career is built on the 'rhythms of writing': long hours of writing in solitude alternate with public events such as book readings and media appearances. Destined to launch a new field of enquiry, Rhythms of Writing is essential reading for students and scholars in anthropology, literary studies, creative writing, cultural studies, and Irish studies.
