Man Booker Prize-winning author Anne Enright turns time and again to the rich puzzle of family life. Best known for The Gathering, her latest book The Green Road was shortlisted for the Bailey’s Prize and the Costa Book Award, and was named Irish Novel of the Year. The Guardian called it a ‘brilliant, devastating and radical novel’. A terrifically inventive writer, Anne sits down with Annabel Crabb for an intimate chat about her work, her process, and why you should imagine you’re dying when trying to write a book.
