13 Dec. Otherwise, Rome's new English language bookshop, presents the "first of many readings and talks" at 19.30 on Wednesday 13 December.
Rome-based Irish writer Barry McCrea will read from his new work, a trilogy provisionally entitled Thorn Island, which recounts the lives of the inhabitants of a Dublin street from 1982 to the present.
McCrea's first novel, The First Verse, won several prizes including the Ferro-Grumley prize for fiction and a Barnes and Noble “Discover Great New Writers” award. It was a bestseller in Spanish and German translations. His most recent scholarly book, Languages of the Night, was named the best book of 2016 by the American Comparative Literature Association. After more than a decade in the United States, McCrea moved to Italy in 2012 where he teaches comparative literature at the University of Notre Dame Rome.
