Edna O'Brien

I made a pilgrimage to the Pavilion Theatre in Dun Laoghaire last week to hear one of my all-time literary heroines, Edna O'Brien, in conversation with Sinead Gleeson, the wonderfully perceptive author and broadcaster.

It was enchanting to watch an iridescent O'Brien (who turns 85 in December) speak of her writing life and her latest novel The Little Red Chairs, which the author Philip Roth has described as her masterpiece.
