I have published three novels to date, and was the youngest ever person to reach number one on the Irish bestsellers’ list. My fourth novel, Nine Folds Make a Paper Swan, is based around the history of the Jewish community in Ireland, and will be published in July 2016 by Atlantic Books (UK/Ireland) and January 2017 by Tin House (US).
My short stories have appeared in a diverse range of publications, from The Istanbul Review and The Irish Pages, to Ambit and Banshee Lit. I also write literary reviews for The Guardian, The Times Literary Supplement, The LA Review of Books and The Irish Independent where I was a columnist for a number of years.
