The Irish writer Killian Turner disappeared under mysterious circumstances in West Berlin in 1985. He was thirty-seven years old. His disappearance, along with the fictions, aphorisms, sketches, and less easily-categorisable writings he left behind, have ensured Turner’s lasting cult reputation. Not only writers, but visual artists, filmmakers, philosophers, and even electronic musicians have found inspiration in his singular body of work. In This Skull Hotel Where I Never Sleep - and its accompanying installation, which recreates Turner’s last known place of residence - is intended as an introduction to the life and work of this disturbing, visionary artist. The volume contains key critical and biographical texts about Killian Turner, as well as Turner’s last known work, An Investigation Into My Own Disappearance, which is widely considered to be his suicide note.

Rob Doyle’s first novel, Here Are the Young Men, is published by Bloomsbury, and was chosen as a book of the year by The Irish Times, Sunday Times, Sunday Business Post, and Independent. It is one of Hot Press magazine’s '20 Greatest Irish Novels since 1916’, and was shortlisted for the Irish Book Awards Newcomer of the Year. Doyle’s second book, This Is the Ritual, was published in January 2016 (Bloomsbury / Lilliput), and was a book of the year in the New Statesman, Sunday Times and Irish Times.
