The author published her first volume of short stories, Antarctica, in 1999 and it went on to win the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature. Her other acclaimed works include Foster and Walk The Blue Fields.
BoyleSports started to see support for the Irish author shortly after the betting was introduced with Keegan now 5/1 from 10/1 to win the 2022 Booker Prize.
Alan Garner is shortlisted with Treacle Walker and is the 11/4 favourite. The British author is the oldest writer to be shortlisted for the Booker Prize with former lawyer turned author Elizabeth Strout next in the betting at 10/3 for her entry Oh William!
Sarah Kinsella, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Irish author Claire Keegan is coming in for support to win the 2022 Booker Prize with Small Things Like These.
“We chalked Keegan up at 10/1 but she has been trimmed into 5/1 so she is in with a chance. Alan Garner is the 11/4 favourite with Treacle Walker but Keegan is gaining on the leaders and the only one we have seen support for so far.”
