Fiction Writer Anne Enright
Winner of the first ever Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction in 2012, Irish author Anne Enright talks about her often darkly humorous approach to writing about love, desire, death, and family.
Recorded at the Kansas City Public Library, this author of five novels and two short story collections reads from her Man Booker Prize-winning novel, The Gathering, and from The Forgotten Waltz, which was a finalist for the 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction. She also discusses how having children helped organize her writing life and reads from her older nonfiction book, Making Babies: Stumbling into Motherhood, published in the U.S. this year.
