• Dancers Dancing

    It is 1972: a group of teenagers are spending a month in a Donegal Gaeltacht, learning Irish language and culture from their teachers and the local community. Liberated for the first time from the restricting reins of parental control, they respond to the untamed landscape of river, hill and sea, finding in it unnerving echoes of their own submerged - and now emerging - wildnesses. In this richly complex novel, Eilis Ni Dhuibhne, one of Ireland's foremost contemporary novelists, uses the experiences and emotions of girls on the cusp of womanhood to explore dangerous territories of sex, politics, class and Irishness. This is a new, updated edition that includes an exclusive Blackstaff 'Bookends' section, with a review, author interview and much, much more.

  • Smoke Dancing: A Novel

    The power struggle between traditionalists and progressives on a modern-day reservation is at the center of Eric Gansworth’s latest work of fiction. Through the characters and their unique “voices,” he deftly develops the multiple viewpoints and arguments that currently exist on many reservations. These voices include a traditional chief and a modern-day group of young adults who, as neglected children, banded together in a traditional dance group.
