I went to Dublin to meet Martin Doyle of The Irish Times for the Book Club Podcast. It was the hottest day of the year (I think) and I’d travelled up from the West Cork Festival in Bantry. The journey took about 6 hours and I had to travel back the next day but it was worth it. I’d been talking to Martin for over a year since he’d helped me by giving advice on the Irish literary scene. Since then I’ve done some interviews with authors which Martin’s printed in The Irish Times.
It has been wonderful doing the Book Club and the podcast, getting to talk about the book in this detail (although it’s a little uncomfortable knowing you’re being recorded).
Excuse all the uuummm’s and aaahhh’s. I hope you enjoy it.
