Colm Tóibín

Tóibín at the 2006 Texas Book Festival Colm Tóibín (; born 30 May 1955) is an Irish novelist, short story writer, essayist, playwright, journalist, critic and poet.

Tóibín is currently Irene and Sidney B. Silverman Professor of the Humanities at Columbia University and succeeded Martin Amis as professor of creative writing at the University of Manchester. He was appointed Chancellor of the University of Liverpool in 2017.

Called "a champion of minorities" by Arts Council director Mary Cloake as he collected the 2011 Irish PEN Award, that same year John Naughton of ''The Observer'' included Tóibín among his list of Britain's three hundred "public figures leading our cultural discourse" — despite his being Irish.
