Roe McDermott looks at the Irish film and TV talent set for a huge 2020.
Sarah Davis-Goff may just be the multi-talented feminist saviour we’ve all been waiting for. Along with Lisa Coen, Davis-Goff is the co-founder of the incredible Tramp Press, which has published Mike McCormack’s Solar Bones, Sara Baume’s Spill Simmer Falter Wither, and Emilie Pine’s Notes To Self. Their authors have won and been nominated for everything from the Goldsmiths Prize to the Dublin International Literary Award and the Booker Prize. A brilliant writer in her own right, Davis-Goff has written about publishing, literature and gender for The Irish Times, The Guardian and LitHub. Her chilling dystopian zombie novel, Last Ones Left Alive, was nominated for the Edinburgh First Book Prize and the Not-The-Booker Prize, shortlisted for an Irish Book Award, and won the Chrysalis Award. Film rights have been optioned by Treasure Entertainment, with the script coming from writer-director John Butler.
