Man Up: Surviving Modern Masculinity
Jack Urwin
This debut work from journalist Jack Urwin is a wide-ranging exploration of what it means to be a man today, a brilliant read for just about anyone who is a man, knows a man or simply wishes to better understand the issues surrounding contemporary masculinity.

Eggshells by Caitriona Lally
Viv is looking for a friend. But Viv’s take on the world is different from that of most people, making her search more difficult.  This brilliant debut novel by Irish author Caitriona Lally is both hilarious and touching, and, as a bonus, will redefine how you look at Dublin streets and its people.

The Hoarder by Jess Kidd
Maud is a care assistant whose latest client is notoriously cranky and who also has to deal with being haunted by a plethora of sarcastic Irish saints and some very dark family secrets. Funny and warm, Jess Kidd’s second novel is a worthy follow up to her highly praised Himself.
