Nuala’s flash fiction has won the Dublin Review of Books Flash Fiction Prize, the Take a Leap Flash Award in 2012 and, most recently, the 2013 Gladstone’s Library Prize (UK). Now she has published her first chapbook of short-short stories, Of Dublin and Other Fictions, with Idaho-based Tower Press.
British author Tania Hershman, author of My Mother Was An Upright Piano: Fictions (Tangent, 2012), says of the book:
‘Nuala Ní Chonchúir does sacred and profane, male and female, love, sex and war, body and mind, the Irish, the human and the non-human, better than almost any other writer I know. Her language is part poetry, part bawdyhouse; her short short stories will leave you gasping and reeling. She surely is an adjective by now: NíChonchúiresque, an original, unique.’
