Authors Caitríona Lally and Andrew Meehan discuss their latest novels.

In Wunderland, brother and sister reunite in Hamburg for a strained, week-long 'catch up'. Intense and hilariously familiar: a must-read for anyone who has navigated the nuances of adult-sibling relationships.

Caitríona Lally was the recipient of the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature (2018) and a Lannan Fellowship for Fiction (2019). Her first novel, Eggshells, was published in the US by Melville House (2017) and in the UK by Borough Press (2018).

‘My novel of the year!’ – Sarah Baume

Andrew Meehan's Instant Fires is set in Heidelberg, Germany and over the course of a hot week in July, two gentle souls test the pull of romance against the weight of their family histories. An absorbing and considered love story from the author of One Star Awake, long-listed for the Desmond Elliott Prize, the UK’s most prestigious award for debut novelists.

'Stylish, very funny, and moving – he's a true original, and this is his best work to date.’ – Kevin Barry
