A chat with prize winning Irish author Paul McVeigh

Mar 16, 2016, 09:43 PM

Paul McVeigh is a prize winning Irish author whose book The Good Son, which is set during the Troubles in Belfast, has been awarded Brighton’s City Reads honour for 2016. His book is being featured across that festival which runs from 3rd March to 29th MAY with a number of events planned across Brighton to honour his book.

We got him into the Radio Reverb studios to chat about his book, the festival and his own experiences of Northern Ireland during the troubles. We also chat about his ever changing age and his autographing technique.

This is an extended version of the interview that was broadcast on the original radio show. For more about Brighton's City Reads festival - check out http://collectedworks.co.uk
