Talk Edinburgh International Book Festival - John Banville

Edinburgh International Book Festival - John Banville


There are events for just about every age and interest at the Book Festival, bringing readers and writers together for inspiration, entertainment and discussion. Around 1000 authors appear in over 800 events, including novelists, poets, scientists, sportsmen, illustrators, comics creators, historians, musicians, biographers, Nobel and Booker prize-winners and many more besides.
John Banville is, wrote Fintan O’Toole reviewing Time Pieces, 'the least likely memoirist': not remotely self-regarding or self-serving. But then the acclaimed Irish novelist's memoir is as much about Dublin as it is about Banville, a city drenched not in sentimentality but brought to life with the astonishing lucidity of his art. Meet the past Man Booker Prize winner, with another genre and yet another triumph.
Chaired by Richard Holloway.
