McCann’s work has been translated into over forty languages and he has been the recipient of many international honours, including the International Dublin Impact Prize, a Chevalier des Arts et Lettres from the French government, election to the Irish arts academy, as well as an Oscar nomination. His 2009 novel Let the Great World Spin earned him the National Book Award and unprecedented international recognition. Hailed by critics and readers alike, McCann’s work is known for its subtle and heart-felt political commentary, on issues ranging from homelessness to the Troubles in North Ireland and the effects of 9/11. His new novel Apeirogon, published in February 2020, explores an unlikely friendship that grows out of grief amidst the ongoing conflict of the West Bank.
