Best known as a cartoonist whose quirky work has graced publications like In Dublin, the Irish Times and Magill, Finnish-born Arja Kajermo, who settled in Ireland in the 1970s, has now written her first novel. Arja’s debut, The Iron Age, began life as a short story which was shortlisted for the 2014 Davy Byrne’s Award. Out of that, after much encouragement from her publishers at Tramp Press (publishers of Sara Baume and Mike McCormack), has emerged a critically lauded short novel.
