Ethel Rohan

Episode 5,  Aug 20, 04:00 AM

Ethel Rohan talks to Books Ireland editor Ruth McKee about Emily Brontë, John Irving, and Elizabeth Strout as she reveals which books she would pull from the flames (and which classic Irish text she would leave in there to burn!).

Ethel Rohan is the award winning author of The Weight of Him (St. Martin’s Press and Atlantic Books, 2017) and of the new short story collection, In the Event of Contact (Dzanc Books 2021), described as “a taut and melancholy meditation on human (dis)connection in overlooked places and among underseen people.” —Sally Franson, San Francisco Chronicle
