City Reads Interview at Brighton Festival May 29

BF Logo

Sunday May 29 at Brighton Festival sees the closing of this year’s City Reads. Over 200 tickets already sold which blows my mind! I’ll be interviewed about The Good Son by author and journalist Laura Lockington. That it’s part of the historic 50 year anniversary of the Brighton Festival makes it all the sweeter. I hope to see some of you there – grab the few remaining tickets here.

Happy St Patrick’s Day: Reverb Radio Broadcast

Happy St Patrick’s Day! I hope you have a good one. I’ll be spending tonight celebrating at the sold out City Reads event – it’s going to be fun.

St Paddy's

If you fancy hearing an Irish accent on St Patrick’s Day…

I spent the afternoon on the ‘What’s The Craic’ show on Radio Reverb. It was a great chat about the process of writing The Good Son and the issues in the novel.

I also chose a couple of songs. I hope you like it.

The culmination of this year’s Brighton City Reads events celebrating my novel The Good Son will take place during The Brighton Festival as it in turn celebrates its 50th anniversary. Here’s the copy – to book click here.

“City Reads is Brighton & Hove’s annual ‘big read’ for adults. This year, people across the city have been reading, sharing and discussing Paul McVeigh’s astonishing debut,The Good Son. Set during the Troubles in 1980s Belfast, it’s an astute, assured and achingly funny novel about the complex nature of innocence and guilt. Paul McVeigh has written plays, comedy and short stories – he is also co-founder of London Short Story Festival. Join him in as he discusses his inspiration for the novel in this final event marking the culmination of City Reads 2016.”

I’ll be reading from The Good Son and will be interviewed by novelist and columnist Laura Lockington.
