Graham Norton is my favorite TV host. He's Irish and he wrote a detective story set in Ireland. That's going to be my pick.

Barbara (barbara_b) | 13 comments I am looking forward to a Maggie O'Farrell, mu current favorite female Irish writer. When looking for a male Irish writer, I would recommend Colm Toibin (especially Nora Webster), and of course John Boyne. His latest, A Ladder to the Sky, is almost as brilliant as The Heart's Invisible Furies.
