Niamh Campbell Wins Sunday Times Audible Short Story Award 2020

Niamh Campbell has been awarded the 2020 Sunday Times Audible Short Story Award for her piece 'Love Many,' which you can click here to read online. The prize-winning short story is set in Campbell’s hometown of Dublin and follows the recollections of a woman who has finally met a man she sees a future with, after dating a host of unsuitable men.

Judge David Nicholls commented: “This is an original and touching modern love story. It has such a lovely quality of sadness, exquisite language, and is told with so much delicacy and precision. I was frequently taken aback by an image or an observation. Most of all, I loved the melancholy of it, that atmosphere of late nights and missed chances.” Click here to watch Niamh Campbell, who published her debut novel This Happy just last month, accepting her award virtually.
