Secret. Best thing about having a story in The Dublin Review? (Revolution postage stamps aside.) Earning a contributor listing below Antonin Artaud, whose ‘An absented-minded person of the student type’ from Issue 1 of the Review is essential reading. Artaud’s penniless travels in Ireland are traced here in official letters, but despite being told at one remove the story is one we can all identify with. The compelling ‘Rough Sleeper’ by Arnold Thomas Fanning in the current issue explores similar experiences from a lucid insider perspective. Haven’t read the whole issue yet, am saving the rest for a longish journey coming up, but it all looks good… The Dublin Review can be bought here. Or to win a copy, just add a comment below. Optional tie-breaker: name an Irish band you will be listening to this winter, and why. Entries close Friday 16 December 2016, so the prize can reach the winner by that day. Oh, and here’s a pic of the prize to motivate you.
