“It is a tremendous honour to have my debut novel Leonard and Hungry Paul selected by Dublin City Council as this year’s One Dublin One Book. As a writer, it feels like I am being claimed by my home city. It also means that for the first time I have had to think about the book in terms of its, and my, relationship with Dublin.”

Rónán Hession writes for RTÉ Culture about what it means to be selected for One Dublin One Book and his relationship with Dublin.
