The fiction of two acclaimed immigrant Irish authors, (Michael Collins, Booker and IMPAC Finalist, and National Book award winner, Colum McCann) has been adapted for the stage in a play titled, Belfast. The play is earning rave reviews in France and an English adaptation is currently underway.

The play is a timely meditation on the recent history of sectarian violence and the bloody entanglement of religion and nationalism on the Emerald Isle.

Michael’s books include Emerald Underground (Phoenix House, 1999), The Keepers of the Truth (Scribner, 2001), Lost Souls (Viking/Penguin, 2004), The Secret Life of E. Robert Pendleton (Bloomsbury, 2006), Death of a Writer (Bloomsbury, 2006), and Midnight in a Perfect Life (Orion Publishing, 2010). The Keepers of the Truth was short-listed for the Man Booker Prize.

Griffin, C.S.C., Award in 2008, and the Lucien Barriere Literary Prize in 2011.
