Nuala Ni Chonchuir

This is the shelf beside my writing desk in my bedroom. It has predominantly short story collections on it because they are what I love the most, as reader and writer. Though I’ve spent the last few years writing novels, I also collect paperweights since writing about them in my novel, which is due out in April, The Closet of Savage Mementos, so a few of them are there. The Royal Baking Powder tin has seaglass and shells in it. A kewpie doll featured on the cover of my last story collection so I bought myself one. That’s a postcard of Anne Enright on the top shelf – one of my literary heroines. I keep her there to remind me to be honest in my writing.
