Claire Kilroy talks about the genesis of her new novel Soldier, Sailor which took over a decade to emerge, how early motherhood affected her creativity, and the profound rewiring that happens to you as an artist and as a person when you have a child.

Claire Kilroy won the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature in 2004, and is the author of All Summer, (Faber 2003), Tenderwire, (Faber 2006), All Names Have Been Changed, (Faber 2009), and The Devil I Know (Faber 2012), which was described by The Guardian as “a satiric danse macabre of brio and linguistic virtuosity.”

Her new novel, Soldier, Sailor (Faber) is out now.
