Canadian Heather O’Neill published her debut novel Lullabies for Little Criminals in 2006, and it has been a runaway success.

The novel's heroine Baby is twelve, nearly thirteen, and lives with her heroin addicted father in a rough part of town. The red light district and its children are recreated in a startlingly poetic, raw and laugh out loud funny way. Told through the intelligent and infectious voice of its heroine the book has both saddened and delighted its readers.

Critics have hailed it as “heartbreaking and wholly original”, and have made comparisons with J.D. Salinger and Donna Tartt. Chair: Noelle McCarthy.
