John Hewitt International Summer School presents

Nuala O’Connor in conversation

Location: Marketplace Theatre, Armagh
Streaming: 13:30 GMT, Wednesday 28 July 2021

Nuala O’Connor, award-winning novelist, short story writer and poet, and one of Ireland’s most acclaimed writers, was born in Dublin. To celebrate the much-heralded publication of her fifth novel, Nora: A Love Story of Nora Barnacle and James Joyce, Nuala will read from and talk about her work to poet, memoirist and teacher, Maureen Boyle.

This new novel tracks the Joyces through their years in Ireland and later across Europe as Nora is torn between their intense and unwavering desire for each other and the constant anxiety of living hand to mouth. In sensuous, resonant prose, Nuala O’Connor has conjured the definitive portrait of a strong, passionate and loyal Irishwoman. Nora is a tour de force, an earthy and authentic love letter to Irish literature’s greatest muse.

 

‘An exceptional novel by one of the most brilliant contemporary Irish writers ...’ Joseph O’Connor.
