Irish Book Awards

John Connolly

John Connolly lives in Dublin and went to Trinity to study English.  He is his first literary novel, although his considerable breadth of writing covers much ground with previous books – from the remarkable The Book of Lost Things, through the number one bestselling Charlie Parker mystery thriller series, the YA science fiction trilogy and the gloriously funny Samuel Johnson children’s books to the non-fiction volume, Books to Die For. He travels much, has a home in Maine and is passionate about the early years of Hollywood. Along the way he has picked up a great many awards for his work.
