Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Damon Galgut's The Good Doctor is in the running for this year's Impac award

If he wins it would be well-deserved. The Good Doctor is an excellent book, sadly overlooked in the Booker Prize shuffle of 2003. (The only shortlisted novels I ever saw on front display that year were Ali's, Atwood's and DBC Pierre's.) #link
