Award-winning novelist Bernard MacLaverty - also short-listed for the Booker Prize - reads from his latest novel Midwinter Break (Novel of the Year at the Irish Book Awards 2017 and Sunday Herald’s Best Writer 2018) and some recent short stories. Bernard discusses a long and successful career and the life of being a writer.
‘MacLaverty makes an impressive return with Midwinter Break: the small details of an elderly couple’s trip to Amsterdam build into a profound portrait of ageing, alcoholism, faith and love.’
‘...a quietly brilliant novel, which makes for essential reading at any stage of life.’ (The Guardian).
