Nuala Ní Chonchúir's literary top ten

Nuala Ní Chonchúir, author of two collections of short fiction and two poetry collections, is the latest writer to offer up a literary top ten at Pulp Net.

Two entries from her list:
My favourite opening line of a novel:

‘It was not a street anymore but a world, a time and space of falling ash and near night.’ from Falling Man – Don DeLillo

* * *
Author I’d like to nominate for the Nobel Prize for literature:

Manuel Muñoz – for his sincere, humane and stunningly well-written stories of the Latino community in California.
Read about Nuala Ní Chonchúir's "favourite novel that no-one else seems to have heard of."
