Barry’s short story collection “There Are Little Kingdoms”was in the running for our inaugural Readers’ First Book Award in 2010. Each year, every one of the debut novels, novellas and short story collections appearing in our adult programme is entered into our Readers’ First Book Award, and the winner is chosen by the public. A prominent new face in Irish literature he pens columns and sketches for the Sunday Herald and the Irish Examiner and has written on the subjects of travel and literature for such publications as the Guardian, the Irish Times and the Sydney Morning Herald. In 2007, he was awarded the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature, earned by his short story collection, There Are Little Kingdoms.
