ASPECTS IRISH LITERATURE FESTIVAL

Thursday 25 September, 9.00pm
CRIME PAYS
Brian McGilloway and Ruth Dudley Edwards

“McGilloway’s Borderlands was one of last years most impressive debuts. Does Gallows Lane pass the feared second-novel test? Easily.” The Times Brian McGilloway is an author hailing from Derry, Northern Ireland. He studied English at Queens University Belfast, where he was very active in student theatre, winning a prestigious national Irish Student Drama Association award for theatrical lighting design in 1996. He currently teaches English at St. Columb’s College, Derry. McGilloway’s debut novel was a crime thriller called Borderlands - the sequel, Gallows Lane, published this year, has attracted huge critical acclaim with The Sunday Telegraph commenting that “McGilloway skilfully handles the tangled threads of a conspiracy surrounding an old crime, to make a satisfying mystery with an attractive central character.”

Ruth Dudley Edwards has been a freelance writer since 1979. Ruth was born and brought up in Dublin, was a student at University College Dublin, a post- graduate at Cambridge University and now lives in London. Since 1993 Ruth has written seriously and/or frivolously for almost every national newspaper in the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom and appears frequently on radio and television in Ireland, the UK and on the BBC World Service. The Anglo-Irish Murders, her ninth crime novel, was a satire on the peace process. Her tenth, Carnage on the Committee, was set in literary London, and Murdering Americans, set in the academic world of Indiana, is Ruth’s latest. Described by The Guardian as “an entertaining and provocative read” her light-hearted and satirical crime fiction “puts itself on the side of the angels by merrily, and staunchly, subverting every tenet of political correctness” - Patricia Craig in The Independent. Come along and hear a reading and discussion of crime writing by two of the most exciting crime writers writing today.
