IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE DUBLIN REVIEW

Autobiography isn’t what it used to be. Some of the world’s most exciting writers, working in a wide range of forms – real-time memoir, personal essay, autofiction – are writing about the self in ways that feel genuinely new. The Dublin Review presents three writers at the beginnings of their careers – Kevin Breathnach, Niamh Campbell and Sinéad Gleeson – who are doing brilliant work in this vein. In conversation with The Dublin Review editor Brendan Barrington, they will talk about their work, their influences, and the pleasures and difficulties of writing the self in contemporary Ireland. If you are a fan of Heti or Knausgaard, Nelson or Cusk – or if you just want to know what’s coming next in Irish writing – then you won’t want to miss this conversation.
