For our Behind the Desk interview, Callum McAllister, The Review's editorial intern and Lit Links columnist, spoke with Thomas Morris. Morris' debut story collection, We Don’t Know What We’re Doing (Faber & Faber, 2015) was chosen as a Book of the Year by The Guardian, The Observer, The Spectator, The Irish Times, and The Irish Independent. It won the 2016 Wales Book of the Year, The Rhys Davies Trust Fiction Award, and The Somerset Maugham Prize –and was shortlisted for the Edge Hill Short Story Prize and longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize. Thomas devised and edited Dubliners 100 (Tramp Press), wherein 15 Irish authors wrote “cover versions” of the stories from James Joyce’s Dubliners. From 2014 to 2016, he was Editor of The Stinging Fly magazine in Dublin; he is now a contributing editor. For 2017-18, Thomas will be Writer in Residence at University College Cork, where he will teach on the MA in Creative Writing.
