Night Boat to Tangier: Kevin Barry in conversation

Tuesday 18th June 2019 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

Hear award-winning Irish novelist Kevin Barry (Beatlebone, City of Bohane) discuss his new tragicomic novel Night Boat to Tangier with acclaimed author Max Porter (Lanny).

Described as Waiting for Godot meets In Bruges, Night Boat to Tangier follows two aging gangsters’ journey through the past to understand the melancholy of the present. Join these two critically-acclaimed writers as they discuss the enduring themes of love and loss, examine the relevance of old myth in representing modern violence, and shed new light on the fusion of tragedy and comedy in contemporary fiction.

 

‘If prose were gold and diamonds there’d be thousands of hell-bent prospectors heading for the Black Hills of Kevin Barry’s glistening, sparkling novel’—Sebastian Barry

‘A bloody mighty novel. It's audacious, but also it's Kevin Barry at his most tender. The novel carries a beautiful, mournful undertow to it, which is particularly affecting in a book so heavy with old myth and new poetry’—Lisa McInerney

‘It’s a Kevin Barry novel, so the brilliance is expected; everything else is a brilliant surprise’—Roddy Doyle

 

The event will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing.
