From Philadelphia, Una Mannion now lives in Sligo. Tell Me What I Am is an unsettling and multi-layered novel about loss and secrets. A woman disappears and her family is left bereft. In Sarah Gilmartin’s Service, conflicting memories of the same events send the characters reeling. Mike McCormack’s This Plague of Souls is set in his own county of Mayo. A man returns to his house in a rural landscape after a long absence to find his wife and child gone. There follows a mysterious series of phone calls with a stranger. Against a backdrop of vague terror in the outside world, he sets out for a meeting. Derek Hand, Executive Dean of Humanities at DCU, will moderate this event.
