In addition to City of Bohane, Barry has published two short story collections: There Are Little Kingdoms and Dark Lies the Island.

"Kevin Barry is an electric presence in the contemporary novel," said Nicholas Allen, Franklin Professor of English and director of the Willson Center. "His command of narrative voice, his imaginative depth and his sheer energy place him in the first rank of modern Irish writers. I have no doubt that in decades to come he is the writer now at work who will still be read and discussed wherever first-rate fiction is treasured."
