Proxopera was one of the first works of literature to address the conflict in Northern Ireland during the 1970’s. Colum McCann wrote “It’s a perfect piece of literature and encapsulates the sadness and terror of what went on in Northern Ireland during what is euphemistically called ‘The Troubles.'”
