The Art of the Short Story: Kevin Barry and Alix Ohlin
Originally aired on October 29
Re-release November 30
Tune in for a joyful conversation between two master short story writers. From the author of the wildly acclaimed Night Boat to Tangier (a New York Times “Top 10” book of 2019), Kevin Barry presents his latest collection, That Old Country Music. You’ll meet a ragbag cast of West Ireland characters, many on the cusp between love and catastrophe, navigating a contemporary Ireland that is in flux, but where old rhythms somehow persist. Scotiabank Giller Prize-shortlisted author and director of the UBC School of Creative Writing, Alix Ohlin offers up her latest collection of glittering, surprising and darkly funny stories of people testing the boundaries of their lives, in We Want What We Want.
