ILFDublin brings together two remarkable writers whose novels inhabit social landscapes the world often chooses to ignore. The New York Times called Ottessa Moshfegh’s Man Booker Prize-shortlisted debut Eileen, ‘playful, sharp, wise, morbid, witty, searingly sharp’. Her new story collection, Homesick for Another World explores themes of rot and decay in vivid, darkly comic prose. Self-described ‘creator of The Glorious Heresies, fitful short stories, and the occasional gourmet crisp sandwich’, multi-award winner Lisa McInerney’s second novel The Blood Miracles reunites readers with Ryan Cusack in the chaotic underbelly of Cork city.  The event is chaired by writer and critic Anna Carey.
