Seamus Heaney Passes Away
Like the rest of the country, all of us here at Dubray Books were shocked and grieved to hear of the death of Seamus Heaney. Our first Nobel prize-winning poet since WB Yeats, he was celebrated the world over for his many collections of poetry and we will cherish our battered copies for many years. We sympathise with his family and friends on this terrible loss. Is féidir Suaimhneas síoraí dá anam.
The Secret World of the Irish Male
There seems to be no end to the supply of outstanding male Irish fiction writers. Donal Ryan has enjoyed great success over the past year with his debut novel, The Spinning Heart, and his second novel, The Thing About December, further justifies the excitement surrounding a fine new talent. 2013 also saw Kevin Barry win the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award with City of Bohane and Colm Tóibín be shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize with The Testament of Mary. There have been many other interesting debuts from Irish male writers over the past year, as well as new books from some well-established authors.
The Sisters Are Still Doing It For Themselves
Female Irish fiction writers have been dominating the bestseller charts for about a decade now and they show no signs of stopping any time soon. One of the most interesting debuts this year has been Michèle Forbes’ Ghost Moth, which Anne Enright described as ‘deeply – sometimes erotically – charged’. This autumn also sees new novels from Jennifer Johnston, Deirdre Purcell and Cecelia Ahern – plus a new collection of the best short stories of Edna O’Brien. And relative newcomers such as Anne-Marie Casey, Rachael English, Anna Carey, Mary Costello, Belinda McKeon, Susan Stairs, Mary Grehan and Helen Seymour are making sure our writers remain the ones to watch.
