Event description
Claire Keegan talks Small Things Like These with Tanya Farrelly

About this event

Small Things Like These, the latest work by Irish writer Claire Keegan, is a beautiful and delicately wrought short novel. Publisher Alex Bowler says it is, “An exquisite wintery parable, Claire Keegan’s long-awaited return tells the story of a simple act of courage and tenderness, in the face of conformity, fear and judgement. To read it is to be deeply touched by hope and by the sheer storytelling brilliance of one of Ireland’s great writers.”

Claire Keegan is best-known for her award-winning short stories, which have been published in The New Yorker, Best American Short Stories, Granta, and The Paris Review, and translated into 20 languages. Claire Keegan grew up on a farm in Wicklow. Keegan traveled to New Orleans, when she was seventeen and studied English and Political Science at Loyola University. She returned to Ireland in 1992 and later lived for a year in Cardiff, Wales, where she undertook an MA in creative writing and taught undergraduates at the University of Wales.
