"Okay, London might have its share of good writers ... but in a straight contest - great writers per head of population - isn't Dublin the clear winner? Haven't we four Nobel Prizewinners (Shaw, Yeats, Becket and Heaney) out of only a million or so inhabitants? As well as the world's best novelist (Joyce) who should have got one too?" - Orna Ross, introduction to city-pick Dublin

"The next in this excellent city-pick series, with some 100 plus extracts from a diverse collection of writers" - Sarah Broadhurst Paperback Preview, The Bookseller
