Joseph O’Connor & Jonathan Dee
A sneak preview of festival favourite Joseph O’Connor’s new collection of stories is sure to be a highlight of the festival. Where Have You Been? is released in October 2012 and several stories are set in his home terrain of Dún Laoghaire. Joseph is the winner of the Irish PEN Award for Outstanding Contribution to Irish Literature, 2012. His most recent novel Ghost Light received rave reviews internationally and was chosen as Dublin’s One City One Book novel for 2011.
Pulitzer-shortlisted author Jonathan Dee’s latest novel The Privileges was described by Jonathan Franzen as ‘cunning, seductive…delicious page by page’. The Privileges is an odyssey of a couple touched by fortune, changed by time, and guided above all else by their epic love for each other. It is a timely meditation on wealth, family and what it means to leave the world richer than you found it.
