Belinda McKeon is included in the The Long Gaze Back: An Anthology of Irish Women Writers

We've all seen the poster: Beckett in the middle, a prune for a face; Joyce bottom left, pretentious in specs. And along the bottom, the words "Irish Writers", as if these 12 black-and-white (and male) portraits tell the full story.

But earlier this year, a different poster went viral - one with Maria Edgeworth and Elizabeth Bowen; one with people in frocks. Then the first ever Laureate for Irish Fiction was announced; a woman. And now Sinéad Gleeson has compiled Enright and Edgeworth and 28 others into the excellent and necessary new volume The Long Gaze Back: An Anthology of Irish Women Writers (New Island Books, €19.99).
