It is 1972: a group of teenagers are spending a month in a Donegal Gaeltacht, learning Irish language and culture, liberated from the restricting reins of parental control. This book uses the experiences and emotions of girls on the cusp of womanhood to explore dangerous territories of sex, politics, class and Irishness.

Review:

'Ni Dhuibhne has a great way of mixing and merging the realistic with something otherworldly, like crossing an Alice Munro or an Anne Tyler with an Angela Carter or a Jeanette Winterson.' Books Ireland 'With a delicate touch not unlike Arundhati Roy's in The God of Small Things, Ni Dhuibhne sneaks under the ill-fitting skin of her metamorphosing Derry and Dublin cast. Their stories unravel in shifting voices with all the wisdom and perspective of an omniscient narrator.' Sunday Business Post 'Ni Dhuibhne's writing is marvellous, building layers of impression until a complex, vital and true-false picture of liberation is revealed.' --Irish Times

'Her observations are lemon-fresh, her writing beautiful, witty and wry.' --Sunday Express

'The author portrays the wild beauty of north Donegal, the doubt and confusion of girls just beginning to discover their sexuality, with a lyrical use of language that perfectly catches the mood of both time and place. The book is a joy to read and sustains the air of wonder, of unsolved mystery to the final chapter.' --Irish Immigrant Review

Book Description Colourpoint Books, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. `Four girls sit on rocks in the middle of the stream: a dark plump girl; a girl whose hair burgeons from her head in a mane of light; another with long white legs and short black shorts, clipped jet hair; a willowy branch of a girl, blonde. The sun shines though green leaves, glancing off chestnut water and all the hair. It is 1972: a group of teenagers, some from Dublin, some from Derry, spend a month in the Donegal Gaeltacht, learning Irish language and culture from their teachers and the local people they are boarding with. 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. Hailed as `one of the most compelling exercises in the female Bildungsroman and shortlisted for the Orange Prize for fiction, The Dancers Dancing is an acknowledged classic by one of our most important Irish writers. If you enjoyed The Dancers Dancing, you might also enjoy Eilis Ni Dhuibhne s novel Fox, Swallow, Scarecrow and her short story collection The Shelter of Neighbours.
