Lucy Caldwell Interviews Me on Child Narrators

Lucy Caldwell and Paul McVeigh discuss The Good Son

You can take the child out of Belfast:

two writers explore the challenges and rewards of using a child narrator

I was delighted to find this interview with Lucy Caldwell in The Irish Times which I’d forgotten about. I hope you enjoy it.

Lucy recently commissioned me as part of a new Faber anthology on Irish writing ‘Being Various’. I read the story for the first time at the International Conference on the Short Story in Lisbon. Look out for that next year.
