The Irish titles nominated are:
Waterford Libraries were delighted to nominate Acts of Desperation by Megan Nolan. This striking debut novel from a young Irish author is impressive not just for its raw and unshrinking look at the cruelties and degradations of a destructive love affair, but also for the confident and mature adroitness of the author. This novel was praised and discussed in our libraries during 2021 – an exciting and original new voice for Irish fiction.
The nominations include 30 novels in translation, spanning 19 languages, with works nominated by 94 libraries from 40 countries across Africa, Europe, Asia, the US & Canada, South America and Australia & New Zealand.16 of the nominations are debut novels.
