Doireann Ní Ghríofa is a poet and essayist. A Ghost in the Throat finds an 18th-century poet haunting a young mother, prompting her to turn detective. It was voted Irish Book of the Year 2020, and described as “glowing” (Anne Enright), “captivatingly original” (The Guardian), “sumptuous” (The Sunday Times), and a “masterpiece” (Sunday Business Post). Doireann is also author of seven critically-acclaimed books of poetry, each a deepening exploration of birth, death, desire, and domesticity. Awards for her writing include a Lannan Literary Fellowship (USA), the Ostana Prize (Italy), a Seamus Heaney Fellowship (Queen’s University), and the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature, among others.
