Extended list of interviews, articles, and notices with and about John McGahern

[Source: Stanley van der Ziel, ‘A Bibliography of John McGahern’, in Irish University Review: A Journal of Irish Studies [John McGahern Special Issue] (Spring/Summer 2005), pp.175-202 - available online at FreeLibrary [online].

Stanley can der Ziel’s published bibliography includes primary titles which are omitted here - as are repeat listings under different headings. There is a warranted emphasis on French translation and French criticism of McGahern. The scale of that bibliography far exceeds the record kept in RICORSO, and appears here chiefly as a resource for the convenient extension of that record as the titles listed have been become available for inspection. It is also used as a basis for the compilation of journal titles not physically examined and not found online. BS]
