Kevin Barry: The Heart in Winter. In conversation with Lucy Caldwell


We are delighted to welcome to the festival one of Ireland’s most lyrical, humorous and profane writers Kevin Barry to discuss his new novel The Heart in Winter (Canongate, 2024) with Lucy Caldwell

Turning page by page from love, to tragedy, to unexpected humour Barry’s voice propels readers with true originality. 


Kevin Barry is the author of four novels, including most recently The Heart in Winter, and three short story collections. He also works as a playwright and screenwriter. He lives in County Sligo.

Lucy Caldwell, a patron of the Belfast Book Festival, is the author of four novels, most recently These Days, which won the 2023 Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction, three short story collections, Multitudes, Intimacies, and the forthcoming Openings (May 2024), and several stage plays and radio dramas.
