How Dublin made Sebastian Barry

Sebastian Barry, who was this week named Laureate for Irish Fiction, is the latest contributor to a “Made in…” series in the redesigned Review section of The Guardian, in which writers reflect on how childhood places have shaped them and their work. “There is no corner or street of Dublin,” he says, “that does not trail or flutter a memory.” Other contributors so far have been Jeanette Winterson on Accrington, Fiona Mozley on York and Julian Barnes on suburban London.
