The controversy surrounding migrant mothers constitutes one of the most important thematic threads in Emer Martin's 2007 novel Baby Zero. This contribution carefully studies this novel in order to examine the often invisible and neglected interrelations between gender difference and contemporary multiethnicity in Ireland. The transnational aspect of Martin's fiction is here brought to the surface as a helpful frame of critical analysis of the intersections between gender and race in both Western and non-Western countries.
