This Month (Jan 2011) our guests are poet Teri Murray and author James Lawless.

His first novel, Peeling Oranges, a paternal quest set in the Liberties of Dublin and Franco’s Spain, was published in 2007 by Killynon House. Awards include the Scintilla Welsh Open Poetry competition in 2002, the Cecil Day Lewis Play Award 2005 for What Are Neighbours For? and a Hennessy Award nomination and the WOW Award for short stories in 2010. A second novel, For Love of Anna, a story of love, ideology and corruption, was published by New Generation in 2009 as was his book on modern poetry, Clearing The Tangled Wood: Poetry as a way of seeing the world, which was published by Academica Press, USA ( ‘a linguistic ballet, learned and lively on behalf of poetry’ - John Montague), and for which he received an arts bursary award. A new suburban novel, The Avenue (‘A work of passion and truth’ - Declan Kiberd)

Teri Murray began writing in the 1980s and was the winner of the Wicklow Drama Award in 1987 for a children’s play. In 1991 she was commissioned by artist Brian Maguire to write a series of poems to accompany his paintings, Behind Bars – Public and Private.

Her work also featured in Round Peg, an anthology by Clothesline Press, Dublin in 1991. She was editor for Scratches On The Wall, an anthology of Limerick writers produced by Tholsel press in 1995. Since then her poems and short stories have appeared in various magazines.
