Audrey Magee: Still Waters Run Deep
Two men arrive on an island, one to paint it, the other to record its speech. Amid their rivalry, the islanders discover their own relationship with the place they call home. Audrey Magee’s second novel, The Colony, tackles questions of identity, art and power. The subtle beauties of her prose have been compared to the work of Colm Tóibín and Anne Enright. Let the words wash over you as she discusses her work with Peggy Hughes.
