Caoilinn Hughes – Dublin International Literature Festival
10th May, 2018
With fans including Donal Ryan and John Banville, acclaimed poets Caoilinn Hughes and Rebecca O’Connor are two engaging new voices in Irish fiction. He Is Mine And I Have No Other, Rebecca O’Connor’s debut set in 1990s small-town Ireland, is a dark and intense novel about the obsessive power of first love and the dangerous claustrophobia of a tight-knit family in a small community. With wit and ferocity, Orchid & the Wasp by Caoilinn Hughes explores the ethical underbelly of contemporary society though the coming-of-age of the singularly unforgettable Gael Foess. We’re delighted to bring two exciting fiction debuts together at ILFDublin! The event is chaired by writer and journalist, Anna Carey.
