Ann Enright is amazing in the reading context - we saw her Belfast a few weeks ago and I was blown away. Hope you get to that one.

I saw her read at the Trinity readings last month. She read a short story from her new book which was fantastic. Great voice, funny and extremely sad all at once. I must get her new book, Talking Pictures. Wasn't quite so overwhelemed with The Gathering, to be honest.
