Today I fly to Paris to begin my French trip. Tomorrow I will take the train to Nantes, on Wednesday to Quimper and back to Paris again on Thursday for my final event.
I’ll be discussing The Good Son and meeting French readers as part of the Prix du Roman Cezam which Un bon garcon (the French translation of The Good Son) is shortlisted.
I was in Paris recently for the New Writings, New Styles Festival at the Centre Culturel Irlandais reading from The Good Son. It’s lovely to return for Un bon garcon.
Wish me luck!
“Paul McVeigh has written a first novel of beautiful generosity, poignant in the delicate manner in which he evokes the brutality of an era. A striking fresco, mixing historical upheavals and hardships of a family shattered.” Le Monde
