Quiet Quarter

The weekend Irish Times did a lovely review of the Quiet Quarter Anthology, Ten years of Great Irish Writing Edited by Máire Nic Gearailt and published by New Island. The review was by the well-read, astute Eilis Nu Dhuibhne. The pieces are all only a few hundred words and there is a great range. I have a piece in there and am reading my copy slowly on the loo. It's a perfect read for the smallest room in my humble opinion. You can buy your copy here.

Apart from my piece (see the side bar for the podcast), there are 130 other pieces from a huge range of writers.

The Quiet Quarter slot is much missed, not only for listeners who appreciated the quiet moment to contemplate, but also as one of the diminishing revenue strands for writers. The reason for the cut from RTE was just the money. Such a shame.
