La Médiathèque rencontre... Barry McCrea

Writer-in-residence Barry McCrea's novel The First Verse won a number of awards and was selected for the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers programme. His work is admired by prestigious critics such as Edmund White and Colm Toibin. "My writing has always centred on a Dublin-Paris axis, both figurative and literal. The last novel ended with Dublin and Paris fading into each other and becoming a single amalgam city, and the one I want to work on at the Centre is multi-voiced and set between the two cities."
