One Winner in “56 Days”

Following up on a bit of news from earlier this month about nominees for the 2021 An Post Irish Book Awards, we can now report that the novel 56 Days, by Catherine Ryan Howard (Atlantic/Corvus), has been named as the Irish Independent Crime Fiction Book of the Year.

Also competing in the crime-fiction category were the following five novels: All Her Fault, by Andrea Mara (Transworld); April in Spain, by John Banville (Faber and Faber); The Dark Room, by Sam Blake (Atlantic/Corvus); The Devil’s Advocate, by Steve Cavanagh (Orion); and The Killing Kind, by Jane Casey (Harper Fiction).

As The Irish Times reports, the winners of this year’s Irish Book Awards—in 19 categories—were announced online on Tuesday evening. “Voting is now open here,” it adds, “for Irish Book of the Year, which will be announced on [TV channel] RTÉ One on December 8th.”
