Abstract

30 years ago, John McGahern's Amongst Women was published to much critical acclaim. It won several awards, including the Irish Times/Aer Lingus Irish Fiction Prize and the Sunday Independent/Irish Life Arts Award. It was shortlisted, along with Brian Moore's Lies of Silence, for the Booker Prize, only to lose out to A.S. Bryant's Possession.
