Why does this small, rocky island have such outsize influence on world literature? Who is coming along in the footsteps of James Joyce, Frank O’Connor, and Edna O’Brien, and what news do they have of Ireland? Meet three members of an exciting new generation of Irish fiction writers: the author of a short story collection about small-town Irish life, a novelist whose latest work is a satirical take on the Irish banking crisis, and a novelist who explores the mysteries of narrative itself in an unconventional mystery novel.
