Author Code: IMJL

Born: Jun. 10, 1912 - East Walpole, Massachusetts, USA

Died: Mar. 25, 1996 - Dublin, Ireland

Educated to the age of ten in Massachusetts, the family decided to return to Ireland and lived for a time in Athenry before settling in Dublin. Lavin was educated at Loreto College and University College Dublin (UCD) where she studied English and French, receiving an MA in 1937. Following graduation, she taught French at Loreto. In 1938, she published her first story, Miss Holland, in Dublin Magazine. Her work was brought to the attention of Lord Dunsany, who was impressed and became Lavin's literary mentor. Her first book, Tales From Bective Bridge, appeared in 1943 and was a critical success. She married William Walsh and the couple had three children. Her literary career took off and she was very productive over the ensuing decade, publishing several novels and short story collections. Her first novel, The House in Clewe Street, appeared in serial form in The Atlantic Monthly in 1945. Her husband died in 1954 and Lavin produced some of her finest stories over the few years until her second marriage in 1969. She won the Katherine Mansfield Prize in 1961 and Guggenheim Fellowships in 1959 and 1961. In 1968, she was awarded an honorary doctorate from UCD. Finally, in 1992, she was elected Saoiby Aosdana, the affiliation of creative artists in Ireland. Her other works include The Long Ago (1944), Mary O'Grady (1950), A Single Lady (1951), The Patriot Son (1956), A Likely Story (1957), The Great Wave (1961), The Second Best Children in the World (1972), The Shrine and Other Stories (1977) and A Family Likeness (1985).
