Paul Lynch: From film critic to Booker Prize-winning authorBy Charlotte McLaughlin, PA Senior Entertainment ReporterPaul Lynch has gone from being a film critic at Irish newspapers to a full-time novelist and now a Booker Prize-winning author. He has written for the Sunday Times about cinema as well as being the chief film critic of the Sunday Tribune from 2007 to 2011 before the Irish newspaper closed. He previously told an interview with the Booker Prize that he began writing the novel shortly after his son Elliot had been born and finished it four years later. A year before he was put on the shortlist for the Booker Prize, Lynch said he was on an “operating table” which has made him think less about the future – that could bring TV and film productions of his work from Booker success. Lynch also said he was writing a new novel but had to put on pause due to the buzz surrounding him being on the Booker shortlist.
