Launch of This Train is For by Bernie McGill

9. June 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

No Alibis Press is delighted to invite you to a live event in No Alibis bookshop to celebrate the launch of Bernie McGill’s wonderful new collection of short stories, This Train Is For.

This launch happily coincides with the twenty-fifth anniversary of No Alibis Bookstore.

About Bernie McGill:

Bernie McGill is the author of two novels, The Watch House, (2017, Tinder Press), nominated for the Ireland/European Prize for Literature, and The Butterfly Cabinet, (2010, Headline Review), and one short story collection Sleepwalkers, (2013, Whittrick Press), shortlisted for the Edge Hill Short Story Prize. Her short fiction has been nominated for numerous awards and in 2008 she won the Zoetrope: All-Story Short Fiction Award in the USA. Her work has been anthologised in award-winning collections including The Long Gaze Back, The Glass Shore, Her Other Language, The Danger & the Glory, Belfast Stories, and Female Lines.

“Beneath the exquisite surface – at once lyrical and plain-spoken – of each of these stories is carried a great freight of feeling that McGill handles with humanity and restraint. An excellent collection from one of the finest short story writers working in Ireland today.” Louise Kennedy, author of Trespasses.

This is a free event but numbers are limited. Please reserve a place here.
