#08 | Colm Tóibín

Colm Tóibín is one of Ireland’s most prominent writers. A prolific writer of plays, essays, articles, poetry and many much-loved novels. In this wide-reaching discussion, Colm talks to WriteStuff about change in Ireland, writing his recent novels compared to his earlier work, common themes in his writing and his process. The idea of flow in writing and sport is discussed as well as well as how he feels about his writing being analysed by others. He finishes by telling us about a book of essays that is due in November.
