Claire Kilroy is the author of four novels, All Summer, (Faber & Faber, 2003), Tenderwire, (Faber & Faber, 2006), All Names Have Been Changed, (Faber & Faber, 2009), and The Devil I Know (Faber & Faber, 2012), which was described by The Guardian as “a satiric danse macabre of brio and linguistic virtuosity,” and by the New York Times as “savagely comic... and great fun.” She has been shortlisted for the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year three times, and was awarded the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature in 2004. She lives in Dublin with her husband and young child.

This young Irish writer packs a stunning worldly wisdom into her beautiful prose.” Barbara Kingsolver, author of Flight Behaviour.
