Gough Wins Best Short

23rd April 2007 by Maura McHugh

RTÉ reports that Irish author, songwriter, and playwright, Julian Gough, has won the prestigious Britain’s National Short Story Prize, and a sum of €22,000.

Gough’s winning short story, ‘The Orphan and the Mob’, was broadcast by BBC 4 radio last week, and if you hurry you can still listen to it (click on the Tuesday reading; the story is read by Irish actor Conor Lovett).

Gough’s new novel, Jude: Level 1, which continues the adventures of the hero of ‘The Orphan and the Mob’, will be published in July.
