Debut Irish Voices
Three fresh, diverse voices in Irish fiction share a common focus on strong, isolated characters struggling to forge their own journeys. What are the roots of the Emergency that has destroyed Ireland? Last Ones Left Alive (Tinder Press) is well-known Tramp Press co-founder, Sarah Davis-Goff’s gripping first novel. Sue Rainsford’s debut, Follow Me To Ground (New Island) is a beautifully controlled, sinister tale that questions our preconceptions of predator and prey and the consequences of unchecked desire. Well-known Galway poet and short story writer, Aoibheann McCann has penned her debut novel. Marina (Wordsonthestreet) is a moving account of its eponymous central character’s solitary existence. This event will be chaired by Danny Denton, a novelist from Cork. The Earlie King & The Kid In Yellow was published by Granta Books in 2018 and was shortlisted for ‘Newcomer of the Year’ at the Irish Book Awards. Denton is also the guest editor of The Stinging Fly (Summer 2019).
