"Ulster's narrative tradition... has been comprehensively and thoroughly analysed by John Wilson Foster in his Forces and Themes in Ulster Fiction, a long and illuminating study."

  • Laura Pelaschiar, Writing the North (1998)

 “The best book I know on the psychological stresses and tensions of my native province . . . and on the allegorising process which we tend to adopt”

  • John Hewitt, poet and literary historian
