John Boyne (2015 Event)

Author of multi-million bestseller The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, John Boyne has unleashed his next book for younger readers, Stay Where You Are and Then Leave. It tells the story of a boy's search for his father during the First World War. For adults, Boyne looks closer to home with A History of Loneliness, a fiction about the priesthood. Why did it take so long for Boyne to write about his native Ireland? Hear Boyne discuss his books and answer this and other questions in this event recorded live at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
