Prizeman & Kinsella Sign Lee Dunne

Prizeman & Kinsella, the literary agency run by Yvonne Kinsella and Patricia Prizeman, has signed one of Ireland’s most prolific authors, Lee Dunne.

Dunne has penned 20 novels, three feature films and more than 2000 tv and radio scripts for Irish and UK media organisations, including the RTE Radio Drama, Harbour Hotel.

His most famous work, Goodbye To The Hill was originally published by Hutchinson and has sold more than one million copies in a variety of editions worldwide. It was also one of the longest running plays ever staged in Ireland when adapted for the stage.

Goodbye To The Hill was part of a trilogy the third of which, Paddy Maguire Is Dead, was banned when published in Ireland in paperback in 1972. Despite this impressive tally, the title has now fallen out of print and the agency is keen to see it republished.

The agency will represent all Dunne’s titles on his books on his behalf. According to Yvonne Kinsella, Dunne has a new work ready to publish about his struggle to make it to the bright lights of Broadway.

Dunne started writing as a young cab driver in London, penning his first works between fares.
