Event 19


Ireland’s Fiction Laureate Anne Enright writes unsentimentally on the family unit, and the tidal pull it exerts. Her latest book The Green Road is an exploration of a clan reunion, during which the complicated matriarch takes to her bed –the “horizontal solution” comments her son. Enright, writes James Wood in The New Yorker, is an unusual talent: “She is a rich lyrical prose writer, who cascades among novelties – again and again, she finds the unexpected adjective, the just noun… But she is at the same time a brisk and satirical aphorist, who often conceals more than she displays.” Enright talks to Kate De Goldi.
