The Coward's Tale travels to Stockholm and New Jersey

Have book, book travels - not the writer, but at least her words...

First, an interview - some excellent, searching questions on the processes behind the writing of The Coward's Tale, from Dr Adnan Mahmutovic of Stockholm University,  for their anthology Two Thirds North, reproduced on Roses and Thorns. 
And a lovely message came through from a Professor of Literature and Writing in the US - having read the novel,  'The Coward's Tale' is to be on his curriculum at a college in New Jersey. I couldn't be more delighted!

And now, off teaching in Ireland. Back soon to host some author visits, from Alison Wells and Nuala Ni Chonchuir.


  1. How exciting! can't wait to see it in the a new york times book review. please excuse my punctuation, I've ditched my blackberry for a phone without a keyboard what was I thinking! Hope you are having a wonderful time.

  2. Very exciting, Vanessa, and congratulations!
