Some exciting news. The Good Son has been chosen by The Irish Times as their Book Club choice for next month, July. During the month there will essays & reviews by authors & my UK and foreign publishers, and interviews with me. It will culminate with a live event in Dublin at The Irish Writers’ Centre where I’ll be interviewed by Martin Doyle, assistant literary editor of The Irish Times on July 19 at The Irish Writers’ Centre.
What have you got to look forward to?
The original, 17 yr old, short story The Good Son is based on.
