The shortlist features a host of internationally renowned Irish authors including John Banville, Edna O'Brien, Emma O'Donoghue, Joseph O'Connor, Cecelia Ahern, Tana French and Kevin Barry, and a wide range of memoirs from Irish political and sporting figures and of course chefs. Lots of chefs. RTÉ’s Claire Byrne and John Murray will present the event.
