The Irish Times has done lovers of short fiction (and incredibly long sentences) a favor by re-published the new Irish writer of the year’s award winning story The Drizzle on the Windscreen.
Manus Boyle Tobin* is the award winning author and his story was “first published in January 2017, and it “has won the Emerging Fiction and overall prizes at the Hennessy Literary Awards 2018.”
*Manus Boyle Tobin is a writer from Dublin studying in UCD for an MA in creative writing. Some of his work has appeared in the Moth and the Poetry Bus magazines. He also won a one-act play competition run by the Cork Arts Theatre.
