Jennifer Johnston has been described as ‘the best writer in Ireland’ by Roddy Doyle, ‘one of our most impressive novelists’ (Sunday Express) and ‘a brilliant storyteller’ (Literary Review). Tinder Press is very proud to be her publisher and we firmly believe that such praise highlights her as a writer who deserves to be known and loved more widely. This reader’s guide brings together for the first time extracts from some of her classic works, including her latest novel, Naming the Stars. Jennifer’s sheer skill at her craft has made her one of Ireland’s national treasures. For the first time, this compendium offers an opportunity for a wider audience to discover the elegance and skill of her unique gift.
