2020 John McGahern Book Prize shortlist

Three authors have been shortlisted for this year's John McGahern Book Prize for debut Irish Fiction.

  • Niamh Campbell for This Happy
  • Cathy Sweeney for Modern Times
  • Hilary Fannin for The Weight of Love (Borrow ebook)

Under the current Covid-19 restrictions public libraries in Ireland are closed, but once we reopen you can request these titles from your local library.

The winner of the prize will be chosen by Colm Toibín and announced later this year.
