Paul Lynch: Hachette Speakers Bureau

Paul Lynch

Acclaimed Novelist

Paul Lynch is the author of the critically lauded Irish novels RED SKY IN MORNING and THE BLACK SNOW, and has been nominated for France’s Prix du Meilleur Livre Étranger (Best Foreign Book Prize) and the Prix du Premier Roman (First Novel Prize).

After a six-publisher bidding war, his debut novel RED SKY IN MORNING was published to critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic in 2013. It was an Book of the Month, a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers pick, a Huffington Post book of the week and The Daily Beast’s Hot Read. It was featured on NPR’s All Things Considered, where Lynch was hailed as “a lapidary young master.” It was a book of the year in The Irish Times, The Toronto Star, The Irish Independent and the Sunday Business Post.

His second novel THE BLACK SNOW was published in spring 2015. It was hailed as “masterful” and “a significant achievement” by The Sunday Times, “dazzling” by The Sunday Business Post and “powerful” by the Irish Times, which praised his ability to “reinvent the English language.” RED SKY IN MORNING was published in the French (Un ciel rouge, le matin) in March 2014 by Albin Michel to massive critical acclaim.

Paul was born in Limerick in 1977, grew up in Donegal, and is now living in Dublin. He was the chief film critic of Ireland’s Sunday Tribune newspaper from 2007 to 2011, when the newspaper folded. He has written regularly for many Irish newspapers and has written regularly for The Sunday Times on film.
