In conversation with author Nuala O’Connor

 

On Thursday night I had the pleasure of interviewing the author Nuala O’Connor at the Crescent Arts Centre in Belfast as part of the Belfast Book Festival.

We were there to chat about her latest novel Miss Emily which tells the story of Emily Dickinson and her fictional Irish maid Ada Concannon.

We had a great evening, chatting about poetry, the process of writing and publishing, feminism, motherhood and Christmas trees!

If you haven’t read Miss Emily yet, I would highly recommend it. I reviewed it here and it was one of the loveliest books I have read all year.

You can find out more about Nuala’s work at her blog and her website. Her other novels, You and The Closet of Savage Mementos and her short story collections Nude and Mother America are also well worth checking out.
