Launch of the Quarryman

Good luck to everyone involved with the launch of Quarryman at the Cork Festival this evening. A great collection and I was delighted to have had the opportunity, along with Donal Ryan, to contribute my sentiments about the work.....

The newly-revived UCC literary journal, 'Quarryman' will be launched at the close of The Cork World Book Fest on Saturday April 25, in The Triskel Arts Centre.

"Within the pages of this anthology, we meet diversity, ingenuity, humour, pathos, compassion and a kaleidoscope of emotions which are both individual and universal," said Louise Phillips, author of Red Ribbons, The Doll’s House and Last Kiss.

Booker nominated author Donal Ryan says that, "It’s a perfect reading excursion, its pages inhabited by cyber-stalkers, bereft lovers, dying crows, web less spiders, disillusioned radicals, illicit cadavers, and people treading the uncertain pathways of life, love and loss negotiating the treacherous terrain of existence."
