I should have linked to this sooner ...

... Toibin's Master takes Impac award . Congratulations, Colm! I spent a very pleasant evening with him and John Banville and Sebastian Barry a while back. I'm very happy for him.

    I am green with envy as I have been Toibin fan since The Blackwater Lightship--and then to meet Banville as well (my dad's family is from Belfast so we're real fans of Irish lit). Lucky, lucky you!

    And wasn't it a great loss when McGahern died in March? Have you read his memoir?
