Ladies' Night at Finbar's Hotel av Dermot Bolger är skriven av sju kvinnliga irländska författare: Maeve Binchy, Clare Boylan, Dermot Bolger, Emma Donoghue, Anne Haverty, Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, Kate O'Riordan och Deirdre Purcell. Vem har skrivit vad får man fundera över.
Finbar's Hotel pools the efforts of seven acclaimed Irish novelists -- Joseph O'Connor, Anne Enright, Colm Toíbín, Roddy Doyle, Jennifer Johnston, Hugo Hamilton, Dermot Bolger. Though none of the stories of Finbar's Hotel are expressly attributed, close readings of these self-contained yet cleverly interconnected stories will undoubtedly lead to much speculation about just which author is behind each episode."
