The word ‘tragicomic’ could have been invented for Irish author Paul Murray, who hit the bullseye a decade ago with his simultaneously hilarious and devastating novel, Skippy Dies. Now he may even have surpassed that success with his fourth novel, The Bee Sting, in which one unlucky moment is the trigger for a sequence of unfortunate events. Join Murray for an hour of savage humour and poetic insights. In conversation with Peggy Hughes.
