New Anthology - The Danger and the Glory

‘The Danger and the Glory, Irish Writers on the Art of Writing’ has just been published by Arlen Press. Originally conceived of as a web-based project, this fascinating anthology is the brainchild of academic Hedwig Schwall and the team at the University of Leuven, and has been supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and The European Federation of Associations and Centres of Irish Studies. Featuring essays by the likes of Anne Enright, Kevin Barry, Evelyn Conlon and Roddy Doyle, it’s an intriguing read and is sure to open up interesting debate around the nature of inspiration and the mystery of the writing process. I have a story in here titled ‘My Patron Saint.’
