Presented in association with Glucksman Ireland House NYU
Named number one in The Guardian’s list of top ten writers to see live, Sebastian Barry will join us to read from his latest literary triumph, Days Without End.
Set against the wild and violent backdrop of the 1850s American West, Days Without End tells the story of Irish immigrant Thomas McNulty and his companion John Cole as they experience the harrowing realities of the Indian and American Civil Wars. Hauntingly brutal and atmospheric, Barry’s narrative evokes the language of Cormac McCarthy and Thornton Wilder.
After the reading, Barry will be joined in conversation with Sabina Murray, author of Valiant Gentleman.
