Amazing story about the two French woman novelists feuding over a "dead baby" belonging to one and a book about a dead baby belonging to the other. Frankly, one wonders about the sanity of both, in particular regarding their peculiar mental attachment to their publisher/editor. And they are leading novelists?

Contemporary Irish writers "lack philosophical depth and don't have the time or patience or the ability to sustain excellence in writing over a complete book"? Gee... maybe John Spain should trying reading some Tana French and Ken Bruen.


Or some Declan Hughes, Brian McGilloway, John Connolly (he's still Irish even if Charlie Parker is a Yank), or Banville-as-Black. Plus other Irish writers I'm surely forgetting...

Exactly so.
