Paris Syndrome Book Launch
Thursday 12th September 18:00 - 19:45
 
Join us for the launch of Paris Syndrome by Lucy Sweeney Byrne
The first book from Banshee Press 
 
In these eleven stories, debut author Lucy Sweeney Byrne invites us to experience travelling the world alone as a young woman, with all its attendant pleasures and dangers. The staff of a boat moored in Brooklyn rebel against their tyrannical boss. A drifting writer house-sits in the wilds of Donegal in the midst of a health scare. In a Texas dive bar, two former lovers try to salvage a friendship from their intense connection. And in Mexico, a frustrated artist navigates a city both dangerous and alluring. Whether set in New York, Oaxaca, Havana or back home in Dublin, the result is by turns sharp, fearless and heartbreaking. Laced with biting humour and devastating observations, Paris Syndrome introduces a unique literary talent.
 
‘Full of vitality and precision, and so rawly funny  this is a fabulous debut.’  Kevin Barry
