Colin Barrett Wins Rooney Prize for ‘Young Skins’ Short Story Collection

Colin Barrett Wins Rooney Prize for ‘Young Skins’ Short Story Collection | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
In July last year, Colin Barrett became only the second Irish writer to win the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, the other being Edna O’Brien. Last night (1st September) he was awarded the 2014 Rooney Prize for Irish Literature, and he has been long-listed for the Guardian First Book Award. As The Irish Times explain, in the citation committee member literary agent Jonathan Williams described Young Skins, a collection of seven short stories, as “a shimmering debut” and Barrett as a “dazzling writer” with “a whiplash wit,” comparing him to Guy de Maupassant, Flannery O’Connor and William Faulkner. The prize (valued at €10,000) was presented to the writer by Dr. Daniel Rooney along with a Pittsburg Steelers T-shirt. The Rooney Prize for Irish Literature is awarded annually to an emerging Irish writer under forty years of age, through the generosity of Dr Daniel Rooney, of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh,…

'The Murdered Cousin' by Sheridan Le Fanu | berfrois

'The Murdered Cousin' by Sheridan Le Fanu | berfrois | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
My mother died when I was an infant, and of her I have no recollection, even the faintest. By her death my education was left solely to the direction of my surviving parent. He entered upon his task with a stern appreciation of the responsibility thus cast upon him. My religious instruction was prosecuted with an almost exaggerated anxiety; and I had, of course, the best masters to perfect me in all those accomplishments which my station and wealth might seem to require.
