The Irish Literary Times provides up-to-date coverage of Irish literary news and events in a magazine format via articles available online.

 

The site is curated by Gerard Beirne an Irish poet and novelist based in Sligo. He has published six books of poetry and fiction. His novel The Eskimo in the Net (Marion Boyars Publishers) was shortlisted for the Kerry Group Irish Fiction Award and was selected by the Literary Editor of the Daily Express  as his Book of the Year “scandalously ignored by the Man Booker judges...”. His recent collection of stories was shortlisted for the Danuta Gleed Literary Award.

The Couples by Lauren Mackenzie: What Normal People would look like with middle-aged swingers | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
We’re warned not to judge a book by its cover, and rightly so here. With artwork showing the remains of what looks like a wonderfully boozy dinner party and hot pink lettering announcing The Couples, Lauren Mackenzie’s debut novel presents itself as a fun, light and risqué read. But the reality is a lot truer to life — and it’s not always the better for it.

Silent City by Sarah Davis-Goff: Outsider faces the twin menaces of zombies and men

Silent City by Sarah Davis-Goff: Outsider faces the twin menaces of zombies and men | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
In Sarah Davis-Goff’s first novel, Last Ones Left Alive, a young girl called Orpen travels across a dystopian, devastated Ireland. She spent her childhood on a remote island, free from the skrake —undead, flesh-eating creatures formed out of the people they have bitten (the word ‘zombie’ is never uttered, but you get the idea). Her life changes when her mother dies and she sets off across Ireland with her mother’s partner, Maeve, looking for Phoenix City, the only known refuge from the skrake on the mainland. Orpen is preoccupied with the idea of becoming a banshee, part of an all-woman army that protects the city.
