Friday Feature Week 19 – Milkman by Anna Burns

Friday, October 23rd, 2020

This week we are reading Milkman by Anna Burns. This book has just been announced as the winner of the 2020 Dublin International Literary Award. 

In an unnamed city, where to be interesting is dangerous, an eighteen-year-old woman has attracted the unwanted and unavoidable attention of a powerful and frightening older man, ‘Milkman‘. In this community, where suggestions quickly become fact, where gossip and hearsay can lead to terrible consequences, what can she do to stop a rumour once it has started? Milkman is persistent, the word is spreading, and she is no longer in control . . .

Milkman is available now for click and collect at Kinsale Bookshop. Call us on 021 477 4244 between 12-3pm, Monday to Friday or email kinsalebookshop@gmail.com at anytime to order a copy.
