Antony Farrell’s Lilliput Press—a tiny independent publisher specializing in biography, memoir, and new fiction—is always on the hunt for new Irish talent, a commodity that, despite the minuscule population, is not too hard to find. Farrell has his finger on the literary pulse and is usually there in person, buried beneath a stack of manuscripts. The bookstore is a cozy, welcoming place to spend an afternoon—ideally on the overstuffed sofa draped in colorful textiles. Lilliput, as a publishing house, doesn’t follow trends; instead, they publish by instinct the kind of books they want to read, and thus far, it’s been a winning formula.
