Donal Ryan & Kamila Shamsie (2018 Event)

Donal Ryan's novels are a thrilling journey into the psyche of everyday Irish folk, but From a Low and Quiet Sea departs from his previous three books by extending its setting beyond rural Ireland into war-torn Syria. Kamila Shamsie’s highly praised Home Fire is another transnational novel, a contemporary take on the Antigone myth, looking at why people become radicalised in the modern world. In this event, recorded live at the 2018 Edinburgh International Book Festival, the authors discuss their Man Booker longlisted works.
