About the Author:

Kate O'Riordan was born and brought up in Ireland. A playwright and a screenwriter as well as a novelist, she has had several plays performed in London theatres, and is currently writing a screenplay of her first novel Involved (Flamingo 1995) for HTV.


'The Boy in the Moon confirms O'Riordan's status as a writer of wit, originality and delicacy who can surprise and delight at every turn.' Sunday Tribune 'A pacy, thriller-like plot... the characters are vivid and the observations tartly accurate.' Irish Times 'Exquisitely spare in execution, this is a haunting examination of human strength and frailty.' Time Out
