Roma Kid, a short story by the award-winning Irish writer Kevin Barry, has been granted exclusively to Literature Ireland for a limited time to mark our key role in the promotion of Irish literature abroad.
The story is exclusively published here in the week of the Frankfurt Book Fair (10–14 October, 2012). The annual Frankfurt Book Fair is the publishing world's oldest and most important trade fair.
Read Roma Kid in English and in a German translation by the acclaimed German translator of Irish literature, Hans-Christian Oeser.
We hope that visitors to our site will enjoy the story.
