#28 | Leabhar Power: Dave Rudden

Ireland has been producing some remarkable YA fiction in recent years, much of which has addressed received notions of Irishness implicitly and explicitly. This is a valuable exercise in the context of Ireland and the Irish language being used as tropes in YA and fantasy literature abroad.

In this week’s episode of Motherfoclóir, Irish Book Award winner Darach Ó Séaghdha interviews Irish Book Award winner Dave Rudden (ably assisted by future Irish Book Award winner Ola Majekodunmi). They chat about the writing process, first sentences and translate some of the key terms in Dave’s books.

You can find out more about Dave HERE – his new book, The Endless King, is out shortly.
