Since her 1988 debut Bad Behaviour, the dark allure and rigorous intelligence of Mary Gaitskill’s writing has fascinated readers. We welcome her to the Festival to introduce Oppositions, a collection of essays that spans 30 years of writing. With her characteristic nuance, she alights on subjects including Talking Heads, Chekhov, horse riding, Celine Dion and the inapposite Hollywood adaptation of her story Secretary. Chaired by Anne Enright.
