Lisa McInerney is back with us on the drift with her 3rd novel set in Cork, The Rules of Revelation, completing her unholy trinity. Her debut novel The Glorious Heresies won the 2016 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction and the 2016 Desmond Elliott Prize. Lisa’s second novel, The Blood Miracles was joint winner of the 2018 RSL Encore Award and was longlisted for the 2018 Dylan Thomas Prize. If you've never been to Lisa's Cork then come join us as we meander around the city to locations featured in her newest work.
Also joining us this year is Eimear Ryan. Her debut novel, Holding her breath, will be released on 17 June from Penguin Sandycove. She is the 2021 Writer in Residence at the School of English, UCC, and is co-founder of the literary journal Banshee Press. She also is a sports columnist with the Irish Examiner. Along the trail, Eimear will read from Holding her breath and Eoghan O'Sullivan will chat to both Lisa and Eimear about their newest works.
