I am so at home in Dublin, more than any other city, that I feel it has always been familiar to me. It took me years to see through its soft charm to its bitter prickly kernel - which I quite like too.

The drb welcomes books to be considered for review. They should be sent to Dublin Review of Books, 17 D’Olier Street, Dublin 2, Ireland.

The Dublin Review of Books Is published by the Dublin Review of Books Ltd. Editors: Maurice Earls, Enda O’ Doherty. E-mail [email protected]

We welcome responses to our published material, either for publication or not. If intended for publication, they should preferably be brief – no longer than the normal letter to the editor in a newspaper. Please send by email to [email protected]

The drb is always open to accepting suitable material from new contributors. Remember that essays should normally be linked to a recently published (or to be published) book and should be written so as to appeal to an educated general, and not a specialised academic, readership. Please send a proposal of four or five hundred words in the first instance to [email protected]. The review publishes two distinct types of contribution: discursive essays which are hung on a new book but which may range more widely and informatively over a subject and its background; and shorter, more narrowly focused reviews of new titles. The former may be three thousand words or more; the latter should normally be between nine hundred and fifteen hundred words.
