With just two short story collections, Claire Keegan has established herself as one of Ireland’s most gifted and finely honed writers. A writer renowned for her poetic sensibility, her first collection was awarded the Rooney Prize in 1999. Her short story ‘Foster’ was awarded the 2009 Davy Byrnes award, and subsequently printed in the New Yorker and released as a stand-alone book by Faber & Faber. This mesmerising novella is now part of the Leaving Certificate English curriculum.
