*YOU* GIVEAWAY


Summer has come to Ireland. Actual sun shining from an actual blue sky!! To celebrate I am giving away one copy of my first novel YOU, which is set in the summer of 1980 in Dublin. Here are what some reviewers had to say when the book came out in 2010:


 ‘...You deserves to find a place in our pantheon of much-admired, beautifully crafted variations on a theme.’ The Irish Times

‘...timeless, placeless and universal... a must read.’ The Irish Independent

‘...a vivid and immediate sensory experience,...Ní Chonchúir's ear – as you might expect of a poet – is alive to the language of her characters...it is about the ordinary, and the secret life that runs beneath it.’ The Sunday Business Post

‘The novel flows beautifully and is understated in tone...This gem is sure to win her further acclaim. Nuala Ní Chonchúir is a writer to watch.’ The Irish Examiner

‘You supplies a pitch-perfect voice to the estranged youngster within each of us, the result being a quietly disarming experience for the reader...It is another success from a writer who seems composed of something that literary awards like to be around... It's all done organically, the hand of the author combining with the reader's own sense of childhood nostalgia to create literary alchemy.’ Sunday Independent

'Ní Chonchúir is excellent on the shifting allegiances between children...this would not have been taken for a début.’ Sunday Tribune

If you would like to win the book, simply leave a comment AND say you would like to be in the draw. I will pick the winner from the hat on the 7th June, next Tuesday. International comp - I will post to anywhere. Good luck!
