The inaugural Irish Fiction Laureate and recipient of multiple awards (including the Man Booker in 2007 for her novel The Gathering), Anne Enright is one of Ireland's most prestigious contemporary literary practitioners.
After a career in television at the Dublin-based RTÉ, Enright changed lanes to study creative writing under Angela Carter and Malcolm Bradbury at the University of East Anglia. A unanimous victory at the 2007 Man Booker helped cement the author's reputation as a true modern-day great.
We welcome the acclaimed author, essayist and short story-writer to Foyles to discuss her latest work, The Green Road -- a study of a fracturing family on Ireland's Atlantic coast in which Enright refracts themes of motherhood, growing old and growing apart in her hallmark raw and emotive prose.
Her only London event for publication, this is a chance to discover what goes into Enright's exquisite writing and to hear the author's own story on how she came to be, amongst so many other things, one of today's premier Irish authors.
Anne will be in conversation with journalist Alex Clark.
We'd like to remind customers that polling stations for the General Election will be open from 7am to 10pm.
