Anne Enright

Anne Enright at Literaturhaus Köln, 18 November 2008 Anne Teresa Enright (born 11 October 1962) is an Irish writer of women's fiction. She has published half a dozen novels, many short stories and a non-fiction work called ''Making Babies: Stumbling into Motherhood'', about her time spent in Dublin's maternity hospitals. Her writing explores themes such as angels, family, love, childbirth, motherhood, the Catholic Church and the female body shape. She is married to Martin Murphy, who is director of the Pavilion Theatre in Dún Laoghaire. He has given her two children, a son and daughter. Described in the past as a Purist (i.e. taking a traditional approach), Enright has recently tried to refashion herself as a feminist (describing her own approach as "sad, smouldering feminism")

Enright had a low profile in Ireland and the United Kingdom (although her books were favourably reviewed) before she somewhat accidentally and unexpectedly won the 2007 Booker Prize "lottery".{{cite news|url= Provided by wikipedia
