In conversation with novelist and musician Wesley Stace 

Paul Lynch won the 2023 Booker Prize for Prophet Song, a “brilliant, haunting” and “crucial book for our current times (The Guardian) that tells the dystopian but plausible tale of a family caught in the clutches of an increasingly authoritarian Ireland. His other novels include Red Sky in Morning, featured on NPR and named a best book of the year by The Irish Times, The Toronto Star, and the Irish Independent; The Black Snow, winner of France’s Prix Libr’à Nous for Best Foreign Novel; Grace, winner of the 2018 Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year; and Beyond the Sea, published to international acclaim and winner of France’s 2022 Prix Gen de Mers. Lynch previously served as chief film critic for Ireland’s Sunday Tribune newspaper and regularly contributed film articles to The Sunday Times.
