Original Fiction

Snowflake By Louise Nealon #1

“SNOWFLAKE is mad and wonderful.  I thought I was reading one thing, then discovered - several times as I read - that I was reading a different, even better thing”

Roddy Doyle

Diving for Pearls By Jamie O Connell #7

“Sprawling and encompassing so many worlds, it's utterly gripping. Excellent”

Sophie White, author of Corpsing

White City by Kevin Power #10

'Outstanding second novel... A brilliantly entertaining novel that is profound in the most unexpected ways. Power is that rarity, a genuinely funny novelist... Yet all the more remarkable is Power's handling of tone: this novel moves effortlessly between humour and sincerity; it is steeped in empathy and raw anger'

Literary Review

Hardback Non-Fiction

32 Words for Field : Lost Word of the Irish Language by Manchán Magan #6

“A rip-roaring, archaeological and anthropological exploration of the lyricism, mystery and oddities of the Irish language, and the layers of ancient knowledge encoded within.”
