Richard Byrne

I write plays and films. 

Read more about that work in the WORKS section, and also on the pages devoted to the Pandora Machine film The Drowned Girl.

I am also an award-winning editor and journalist. My work has been published in places including Time, The Nation, The New Republic, The BafflerBookForum, New York Press, The Wilson Quarterly, The Guardian, and the Washington Post. 

You can read the best of this work on my WRITINGS page. 

You can sample highlights of my music criticism - including liner notes for records by R.E.M. and Uncle Tupelo - on the MUSIC page.


My blog is Balkans via Bohemia. Find that here.
