John Boyne: My Brother’s Name is Jessica


Selling Fast

John Boyne is the author of numerous best-selling novels, including The Absolutist, The Heart’s Invisible Furies and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, which was a New York Times number one bestseller and adapted into a feature film.

We are delighted to welcome the Dublin-born writer to Belfast to discuss his multifaceted writing career, from his adult novels, the latest being A Ladder to the Sky, which The Observer described as ‘a deliciously dark tale of ambition, seduction and literary theft’, to his Young Adult fiction, including the new release My Brother’s Name is Jessica, a story about growing up as a transgender woman in Ireland.
