Author Caoilinn Hughes

November 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Author Caoilinn Hughes will discuss her novels, especially her recent work, The Wild Laughter. Set on a bankrupt farm in Roscommon, the novel is told from the perspective of the son who works it, in desperate fear of losing his ailing, beloved father. It’s 2008, and the Celtic Tiger has left devastation in its wake. Brothers Hart and Cormac Black are waking up to a very different Ireland – one that widens the chasm between them and brings their beloved father to his knees. Hilarious, poignant and utterly fresh, The Wild Laughter cements Caoilinn Hughes’ position as one of Ireland’s most audacious, nuanced and insightful young writers. This book was the winner of the 2021 Encore Award and was the Irish Times and the Sunday Independent Book of the Year 2020.
