A busy autumn and winter for Irish publishers Gill Books, with dozens of new titles expected to be released in the coming months, including One, Two, Three Times An Aisling, and the second book of short stories from Blindboy Boatclub.
Jamie Heaslip's autobiography All In (written with Today FM's Matt Cooper), is set to be released this October.
Gill Books have shared their list of upcoming books to be released in the coming months, with some interesting titles.
Among them is Jamie Heaslip's book, which is sure to be a massive success.
A description of the book on the Gill Books website reads: "Jamie Heaslip is one of the most decorated players in the history of Irish rugby. Over the course of a 13-year career, during which time he amassed 229 appearances for Leinster and 100 international caps, his name became synonymous with both the Irish number 8 jersey and the values that have propelled the growth of rugby in Ireland: diligence, professionalism and an unwavering commitment to self-improvement.
"Here, in a frank and stirring account of his years on rugby’s frontline, Heaslip recalls the events, wisdom and personalities that helped craft his winning mindset and vault Ireland to the summit of world rugby. At once an inspiring personal memoir and insider’s account of Ireland’s transformation from amateur backwater to professional powerhouse, All In is an inspiring meditation on sport, leadership and what it takes to succeed in the harshest environment."
Elsewhere on the list, the third instalment in the much-loved Aisling series is set to be released in September, titled Once, Twice, Three Times An Aisling.
On top of that, it looks like there's going to be a second book of Stories from Rubberbandits singer and Ireland's very own cultural Renaissance man Blindboy Boatclub.
Gill Books's catalogue says: "Ireland’s most acclaimed satirist is back with a second collection of short stories to provoke, unsettle and illuminate. Roving through the centuries, from the barren fields of the Famine-struck West to the hyperreal adscape of our technocratic present, the second collection of short stories from Blindboy Boatclub is a wild and exhilarating hike along the knotted paths of the Irish subconscious. From the time-travelling effects of tweed suits, to a vengeful farmer who hypnotises elderly people into believing they’re cows after his farm is turned into a nursing home, these stories are characteristically surreal, yet littered with moments of profound insight and quiet devastation."
