Mike McCormack Early Life and Education

McCormack was born in London. He spent his early childhood in a farm in Louisburg, County Mayo and studied English and philosophy at The National University of Ireland Galway (NUI Galway). In 1996, he was granted the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature. In 1998, Getting It In the Head was voted a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. A story from the accumulation, “The Terms,” was adapted into an honor winning short movie directed by Johnny O’Reilly.

In 2006, Notes from a Coma was shortlisted for the Irish Book of the Year Award. In 2010, John Waters in The Irish Times described it as “the best Irish novel of the decade.” It took McCormack seven years to compose the book. In May 2016, Dublin publisher Tramp Press published his novel Solar Bones; this went ahead to win the Goldsmiths Prize. The book was surprising in that it was composed as a solitary sentence (albeit a long one, that ranges around 270 pages). Additionally, in 2016 the book was named “Novel of the Year” by the Irish Book Awards.
