"The squat mushroom-shaped shadow of the Martello tower had come to fall over the both of them as they talked. He felt himself once again suspended in aspic. A man trapped in a gelatinous prison of nationality, of duty, of sacrifice, of tradition, of whatever other lies people tell themselves to get in the way of their own happiness."

Imagination, fantasy, myth and tragedy collide in this darkly-comic, intergenerational tale of Irish life.

Four lives: Cian Mulligan, a student prone to wild flights of fantasy, whose personality bleeds into his writing; Oisín Murphy, a reserved boy trying to find his place in a world he's only just beginning to understand; Siobhán Rafferty, a successful lawyer whose perfect life is coming apart at the seams; and an unnamed man who wanders Dublin's Streets - past and present - lost in the reveries of a bygone age.

Blending humour, formal-daring and memorable characters, Flight of the Curlew weaves a rich tapestry.

Andrew Murnane

Andrew Murnane is an author from Dublin, Ireland.

He completed his studies in Cinema and French language at Trinity College, Dublin in 2023.

Also in 2023, Andrew co-directed "Ulysses: A Stroll Through James Joyce's Dublin" - a documentary short-film examining the legacy of James Joyce's modernist classic through the modern day topography of Dublin. The film was selected for inclusion in the Bloomsday Film Festival, a literary film festival with hundreds of attendees and events across Dublin City.

Andrew first discovered his love of literature through James Joyce and, since then, has become a voracious reader, devouring everything from Proust to Rushdie.

Currently based in Hamburg, Andrew is eager to turn his skills towards creative writing and share his unique perspective on Irish life and writing with the world.
