At the beginning of my twenties I turned up for work
In the long corridors I said hello to every colleague
That shift lasted into the night
And heading for home tired on the tram
There was barely a soul around
Gerard Brennan is not only one of the most compelling contemporary Northern Irish novelists (which makes him the cream of a rich crop), he’s also a learned and fascinating literary and political thinker… and a musician.
In this podcast, he discusses his novel Shot (which, along with its sequel, Drag, is published by Dockyard Press, as is his early novel Fireproof), humour in noir, Northern Ireland’s history, culture and politics, and the country’s support for its writers. And he has some kind words for Dockyard Press’s boycott of Amazon.
And he composed the music for this episode.
