ORCHID & THE WASP: CAOILINN HUGHES
Orchid & the Wasp poet Caoilinn Hughes’ debut novel, received rapturous reviews from luminaries such as John Banville, who fell for its inventiveness, ambition and insight. Hughes’ debut poetry collection Gathering Evidence was similarly feted, winning The Irish Times Shine/Strong Award, and making it on to several shortlists including the NZ Post Book Award for Poetry. Hughes speaks with Sonya Wilson about the path from poetry to fiction and its Irish backdrop.
