Literature of the 'Troubles': Novels

The following bibliography was originally compiled using bibliographies produced by Bill Rolston at the University of Ulster and Robert Bell of the political collection at the Linenhall Library. It has been updated periodically since. Every attempt has been made to ensure that the novels referred to relate at least in part to the political conflict in Northern Ireland since 1969. No short stories or collections of short stories are included.
