From the Boston Globe: The geography of Irish-American Literature

Recently, the Boston Globe posted a link to an interesting study by Matthew L. Jockers at Stanford about the geographic settings of Irish American novels.

I haven't read the study yet, but the fact that so many more recent novels written by Irish Americans are set in California (as opposed to Boston, let's say) may just reflect the fact that many more American novels are set in California than Boston.
