'You read a story in half an hour, you remember it a lifetime. This collection is a great rattlebag of promise'
- Colum McCann
For thirty-five years the Hennessy Literary Awards have proved a vital launch pad for successive generations of Irish writers, writers who have gone on to reshape the face of Irish fiction. Taken from the last ten years, The New Hennessy Book of Irish Fiction is a vibrant and dynamic compilation of many of the finest stories first published on the New Irish Writing page in the Sunday Tribune, from which the short-lists for the Hennessy Awards are drawn every year.
These are the early stories – sometimes the first stories – of some of our most talented writers. Revealing the emergence of a new generation. The New Hennessy Book of Irish Fiction captures an extraordinary explosion of writers in the triumphant process of making themselves heard.
