Contemporary Stories by Irish Women Writers
""Pure Invention" is a story of mine included in this collection. The editors remarked that it was the only positive view of marriage that they found among the stories they considered for the collection!" - Anne Le M. Hartigan.
"We wanted to provide something of the range of literary styles being employed by Irish women today: the sharp, hilarious satire of a writer like Clare Boylan; the lyrical elegiac prose of a writer like Mary Lavin; the oral folk-tale quality of the work of Anne Le Marquand Hartigan" - From the Introduction
