THE OTHER IRISH TRADITION

With Rob Doyle, John Holten and June Caldwell

In Association with Dalkey Archive Press

The Other Irish Tradition – edited by Rob Doyle and published by Dalkey Archive Press this month – is a colourful anthology that celebrates the experimental strain in Irish literature, from Laurence Sterne and Jonathan Swift to the bleeding-edge of contemporary writing. It juxtaposes the work of heralded masters such as Joyce, Beckett and Flann O’Brien, with the startling and innovative work of young and present day writers such as Mike McCormack, June Caldwell, John Holten and Anakana Schofield. Don’t miss the editor in conversation with contributors to discuss this refreshing and provocative collection of Irish writing.

Booking advised.
