Irish Independent promotes Women Writers

The Irish Independent are promoting one book per week for just under a fiver and a token from the newspaper. Some great books, some not so great but kudos for promoting women writers.

September 15th Enda Edna O'Brien In the Forest (Free and too late now)
September 22nd Martina Devlin Venus Reborn (too late now too)
September 29th Sinead Moriarty The Baby Trail (I'd like to read this)
October 6th Anne Enright The Pleasure of Eliza Lynch (turgid, unengaging)
October 13th Rose Doyle Shadows will Fall
October 20th Cecelia Ahern Where Rainbows End (does she need any more more - OK jealous)
October 27th Nuala O'Faolain Are you Somebody (bit of a misery memoir and not my cup of tea)
November 3rd Deirdre Purcell Falling for a Dancer (very popular but dreadful)
November 10th Clare Boylan Holy Pictures
November 17th Catherine Dunne In the Beginning
November 24th Christine Dwyer Hickey Tatty
December 1st Karen Gillece Seven Nights in Zaragoza (who?)
December 8th Josephine Hart Damage
December 15th Claire Keegan Antarctica (short stories, supposed to be good. Expect it's gloomy)
December 22nd Jennifer Johnston Christmas Tree (seasonal!)
December 29th Marian Keyes Angels (I love her witty writing)
January 5th 2008 Claire Kilroy All Summer (supposed to be a great writer)
January 12th Sharon Owens The Tea House on Mulberry Street (I'd like to read this)
January 19th Sarah Webb Always the Bridesmaid
January 26th Emma Donoghue Slammerkin (supposed to be good)

Whose missing (possibly for copyright reasons)

Maeve Binchy, Meave Brennan, Eaven Boland (no poetry at all), Mary Lavin, Molly Keane, Paula Meehan, me, Rita Ann Higgins, etc. Any others?
