Anne Donovan
A prize-winning short story writer and novelist, Anne Donovan’s debut novel Buddha Da (2003) was shortlisted for the Orange Prize and was hailed for its beautiful perception of ordinary life. Her celebrated short stories can be found in her 2001 collection Hieroglyphics and Other Stories, and her most recent publication is Being Emily (2008), described by the Sunday Times as being ‘an accomplished family drama which is quirky and endearing. Don't wait until your next life to read it’. More recently, Donovan has turned her hand to scriptwriting, working on adapting Buddha Da for the big screen. She currently lives in Edinburgh, and there are varied interviews with which to discover more about Donovan. Listen to her on Glasgow Writers, or read about her on the Barcelona Review or the Short Review.
