Sebastian Barry

Sebastian Barry (born 5 July 1955) is an Irish novelist, playwright and poet. He was named Laureate for Irish Fiction, 2019 - 2021. He is noted for his dense literary writing style and is considered one of Ireland's finest writers.

Barry's literary career began in poetry before he began writing plays and novels.

He has been twice shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize for his novels ''A Long Long Way'' (2005) and ''The Secret Scripture'' (2008), the latter of which won the 2008 Costa Book of the Year and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. His 2011 novel ''On Canaan's Side'' was longlisted for the Booker. In January 2017, Barry was awarded the Costa Book of the Year prize for ''Days Without End'', hence becoming the first novelist to win the prestigious prize twice. Provided by Wikipedia
