STINGING FLY - October issue & The Book Show

The new issue of The Stinging Fly dropped through my letterbox today. New stories from Seán O'Reilly, Hugo Kelly, Cathy Sweeney and myself, among others. New poems from Eamon Grennan, Rita Ann Higgins, Geraldine Mitchell and Afric McGlinchey, among many more. Also an essay from Dave Lordan on meeting Dennis O'Driscoll in New York.

My story is called The Boy from Petrópolis and is about Elizabeth Bishop; it was inspired by my trip to Brazil last year.


By the way, if you haven't already, you could do worse than listen to the playback of RTÉ Radio 1's new book programme, The Book Show, presented by Sinéad Gleeson. A special hour-long inaugural episode aired on Saturday, including features on Maeve Brennan and George Saunders. It's very good.
