Hodges Figgis – one of the world’s great bookshops – has for 250 years served the literary community of Dublin. Reading The Future: New writing from Ireland
is a celebration of that cherished relationship. Over 720 pages, the volume features work by 250 contemporary Irish writers (fiction, poetry, drama, Irish language, crime, young adult and children’s writing, alongside a wealth of archival images), making it the largest-ever anthology of new Irish writing.
Brian has a short story called "There was Only So Much One House Could Take". It's a moving story of sibling rivalry, death and decay told from a utterly unique perspective.
Brian will read his short story at Hodges Figgis, 56-58 Dawson Street, Dublin on Thursday 23rd August at 6pm. All are very welcome
