An evening celebrating new books from two established talents of Irish writing.
Kevin Barry’s stories have won major prizes including The Sunday Times EFG Prize for Beer Trip to Llandudno, while his first novel City of Bohane won the IMPAC Prize in 2013 and was described in the New York Times as a novel ‘full of marvels’.
His new, eagerly-awaited novel Beatlebone is an arresting and incredibly funny story that imagines a trip by John Lennon to Ireland's west coast during 1978.
Irish poet John McAuliffe has lived in Manchester for more than a decade, where he co-directs the University’s Centre for New Writing. This event will be the launch of his fourth collection The Way In. His previous collection Of All Places was described by Thomas McCarthy as ‘a glorious book… by an Irish writer who is a poet’s poet, an immortal watchman in poetry, a guardian sent to mind the guardians.’
