“”Acclaimed Irish author Edna O’Brien (The Country Girls, Saints and Sinners) discusses her latest novel,The Little Red Chairs, with Colum McCann (TransAtlantic). When a woman discovers that the foreigner she thinks will redeem her life is a notorious war criminal, she flees to England and seeks work among the other migrants displaced by wars and persecution. The Little Red Chairs, O’Brien’s first novel in ten years, is a book about love, evil, and discovering the long, sometimes crooked journey back home. With readings by Suzanne Bertish.””
