Mostly non-fiction with many authors weighing in on how Irish crime fiction was born, evolved & influenced in a series of essays. Tucked in are 3 or 4 short stories that I really enjoyed. ( )

Book description
Is crime fiction now the most relevant and valid form of writing to deal with Modern Ireland in terms of the post-'Troubles' landscape and the post-Celtic Tiger economic boom? As the first book written on this topic, Down These Green Streets is both detailed and diverse, with each chapter providing a new author's approach and discussing a different aspect of Irish Crime Writing. It is a collection of essays, interviews and short fiction. The contributor list includes a number of internationally renowned crime writers, such as John Connolly, Tana French, John Banville and Alex Barclay, featuring rare and unpublished pieces.
