Ruth Gilligan in conversation with Marie Mianowski

Rencontre / Débat / Recherche

Le 15 avril 2021

In her conversation with Marie Mianowski, Ruth Gilligan reads from Nine Folds Make a Paper Swan (2016) and discusses her representation of the Irish-Jewish community. She also reads from her latest historical novel The Butchers (2020) and reflects on parallels between the BSE scandal that enveloped British and Irish farming during the 1990s and the current post-Brexit border issues and Covid19, as well as on the tensions - between the modern and the traditional, different generations, and men and women - that drive her narratives. She also talks about her departure from autobiographical fiction and her research practices as an author of historical fiction.
