Biography
Robert McLiam Wilson was born in Belfast in 1964, and he still lives there. Sent away from home by his mother when he was 15 years old, he had a difficult adolescence. After studying for two years at St Catharine's College in Cambridge, he abandoned his education to devote himself to writing. His first novel, Ripley Bogle, published in 1989 (when he was 25 years old), was greeted by critics as an exceptional literary debut. Then together with Donovan Wylie, he wrote The Dispossessed (1992), an essay on poverty in Great Britain.
Real success came with Eureka street, published in 1996, in which he ironically and also dramatically portrayed the difficult political situation in Ireland. This book was a serious literary case and a great success in Ireland, Great Britain, and in Italy. The winners of the Rooney Prize, the Hughes Award, the Irish Book Award and the Betty Task Prize, his books have been translated into fourteen languages.
