The Cruelty Men: Irish Novel of the Year, 2019

November 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$10

In partnership with Hinterland.

Emer Martin is a true renaissance woman (adult writer, children’s writer, artist, filmmaker). Her fourth novel, The Cruelty Men, was nominated for Irish Novel of the Year 2019, and was described by Irvine Welsh as ‘a tidal wave that drags you like a piece of debris through Irish history’. It is an unsentimental, multi-generational saga of the dark days in Ireland from the 1930s to the 1960s when the unholy Trinity of Rome, rum and reaction held sway in a frightened state. In conversation with Hinterland director Tony Bucher.
