Upcoming Event
Friday, September 20, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Long-listed for the 2019 Booker Prize, Irish fiction sensation Barry’s latest novel takes place in a ferry terminal on the coast of Spain, where Maurice Hearne and Charlie Redmond, a pair of aging drug smugglers, are waiting for a woman named Dilly who may or may not be Maurice’s estranged daughter. As their wait becomes a night-long vigil, the pair look back over the course of their lives, trading stories of romance, adventure, and betrayal. Writing with the signature wry humor and irrepressible wit from his award-winning Beatlebone and City of Bohane, Barry makes each phrase sing, which becomes all the more apparent in his inimitable live readings.
