discussing Brownrigg's new novel, Pages for Her, the story of two women, Flannery and Anne, each at a personal turning point, and the circumstances that lead to their reunion.

"Brownrigg . . . approaches her characters with clarity and sensitivity, capturing the nuances in the women's relationships to the people they love--as mother, daughter, sister, friend, wife, or lover--and the power they give those people to define and inspire them . . . Brownrigg considers motherhood, romance, identity, and the changes brought by time in this tender, insightful novel."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

September 2017

reading from Days Without End, winner of the Costa Book of the Year Award (his second) and just released in paperback.

"A true leftfield wonder: Days Without End is a violent, superbly lyrical western offering a sweeping vision of America in the making, the most fascinating line-by-line first person narration I've come across in years."--Kazuo Ishiguro

"For its exhilarating use of language alone, Sebastian Barry's Days Without End stood out among the year's novels. Epic in conception but comparatively brief in its extent, this brutal, beautiful book also features the year's most beguiling narrator ... A great American novel which happens to have been written by an Irishman."--The Times Literary Supplement
