Writers Under the Influence – August

Buck Mulligan

Event Date: 2 August 2017
Author / Presenters: Aoife Clifford and Anna George

Writers Under the Influence is a monthly literary event at Buck Mulligan's, where writers read from works they admire, as well as something of their own, followed by well-lubricated discussions, reminiscent of an old-style writers’ salon.

Join us this month for a brilliant crime/thriller double bill - with Aoife Clifford and Anna George.

Aoife’s bestselling debut novel, All These Perfect Strangers (2016), was published in Australia, the UK, and the USA.

She is the only person to have won both premier short story prizes for crime fiction in Australia – the Scarlet Stiletto, and the S.D. Harvey Ned Kelly Award. Among other prizes, she has been shortlisted for the UK Crime Association’s Debut Dagger, was awarded an Australian Society of Authors mentorship, and is an Amazon Rising Star.

Her short stories have been internationally published, and her next novel will hit the shelves in 2018.

Anna’s critically acclaimed debut novel, What Came Before (2014), is a stunning literary thriller about the risks you take when you fall in love. It was shortlisted for the 2015 Ned Kelly and Sisters in Crime Best Debut Fiction awards, and was longlisted for the 2016 International Dublin Literary Award.

Anna has worked in the legal world as well as in film and television. Her second novel, The Lone Child (2017), has just been published and explores pain, judgement, love and loss. The Lone Child is a chillingly honest depiction of the bewildering and often isolating exhaustion of motherhood, and the fraught bonds between mother and child.
