Praise for Declan Burke: “Burke shows again that he’s not just a comic genius, but also a fine dramatic writer and storyteller.” – Booklist. “Proust meets Chandler over a pint of Guinness.” – Spectator. “Among the most memorable books of the year, of any genre.” – Sunday Times. “A hardboiled delight.” – Guardian. “Imagine Donald Westlake and Richard Stark collaborating on a screwball noir.” – Kirkus Reviews. “A cross between Raymond Chandler and Flann O’Brien.” – John Banville.

Audio: the Festival du Polar Irelandais Noir Emeraude

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that a body of Irish crime writers – including Jane Casey, Liz Nugent, Eoin McNamee, Declan Hughes and Alex Barclay – were off to Paris to take part in the Festival du Polar Irlandais Noire Emeraude at the Irish Cultural Institute.
