Claire Keegan was raised on a farm in Wicklow.
Antarctica won the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature and was a Los Angeles Times Book of the Year. Walk the Blue Fields won the Edge Hill Prize for the finest collection of stories published in the British Isles. The judge was Hilary Mantel.
Foster won the Davy Byrnes Award — then the world’s richest prize for a story, judged by Richard Ford. Foster was chosen by The Times UK as one of the top 50 works of fiction to be published in the 21st Century.
Her novel, Small Things Like These, won the Ambassador’s Prize for best Irish novel published in France, The Kerry Group Prize for Best Irish Novel, The Orwell Prize for Political Fiction, and was shortlisted for both the Rathbones Folio Prize and the Booker Prize.
Keegan last month received Tatler Woman of the Year Award in Ireland for Literature. Her work is translated into thirty languages.
