The Literary Afterlives of Roger Casement, 1899–2016 

Liverpool University Press, 2020.

‘As the debates on [the Black Diaries’] authenticity fade from centre stage, the challenges posed […] can now be unpacked, as Garden does so carefully and superbly here. […] a worthy addition to Casement studies’.

Mary McAuliffe in Irish Historical Studies, 45:168 (2021), pp. 351–352.  

‘Garden writes an admirably nuanced and elaborately and systematically interwoven text […] This study adds much to the fields of memory studies, to gender studies, to the nationalist histories of Ireland and Britain, and to literary studies’.

Frances Devlin-Glass in Australasian Journal of Irish Studies, Volume 21 (2021), pp.155-157.

This has also been reviewed by Fergal Lenehan in Irish Studies Review, 28:4 (2020) pp. 533-534 and Galen D. Bunting in Modernism/modernity Print +, Volume 6, Cycle 3.
