Our ND Irish Studies Librarian and the Curator of Irish Studies Collections, Aedín Ní Bhróithe Clements, has a blog that keeps track of new and relevant books. You should check it out!
There’s a book listed that I had not heard of before and I have just added it to my list! Hollywood Cemetery, by Liam O’Flaherty. If you are writing about The Informer / Uptight, you might want to check it out. O’Flaherty spent time in Hollywood while Ford was making the film. The novel recreates his time there from a satirical pov and supports my reading of the film as noir (I think). Very interesting development. It seems the novel was banned in Ireland and only survived one printing.
Aedín also included this note: Please don’t hesitate to ask if there are books or articles you need. There is so much information about online resources and services that I’d rather pass it along selectively as needed, but you can find it all in the ‘COVID 19 Service Continuity’ link on the library home page.
So again, if you have trouble finding materials while you write your research papers, please let me know. I will do my best to help you locate the texts you need to finish your papers.
Happy reading and writing!
