Gerard Donovan


Gerard Donovan is an acclaimed Irish-born novelist, poet and photographer who currently lives in New York. After three volumes of poetry, he published his debut novel Schopenhauer's Telescope (Perseus/Scribner 2003), which won the Kerry Group Irish Fiction Award 2004, was a finalist for the Irish Novel of the Year 2003, was nominated for the Hughes & Hughes Sunday Independent Award and was long-listed for the 2003 Man Booker Prize. His other novels are Doctor Salt (Scribner 2005) and its ‘American rewrite' Sunless (Overlook 2007), and Julius Winsome (Faber and Faber 2007), a remarkable tale of revenge and loss triggered by the killing of a dog. The collection of refined and realistic stories published as Country of the Grand by Faber and Faber, and as Young Irelanders by Overlook (2008) was fifteen years in the works and offers a startling look at a newly prosperous Ireland.
