The Dublin-born writer Anne Enright has been shortlisted for this year's Man Booker Prize. Her writings have appeared in publications including The New Yorker, The Paris Review, Granta and the Dublin Review. Her first collection of short stories, 'The Portable Virgin', won the Rooney Prize in 1991 and her non-fiction book 'Making Babies' brought her a whole new audience when it was published in 2005. With her fourth novel 'The Gathering' Anne Enright entered new territory, both in her writing and in her career as a writer, when the novel was longlisted, then shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. In advance of the announcement of the Man Booker Prize winner, we met the author.
