Literary listen: Lisa McInerney

As it’s Christmas, we’ve got a very special literary listen for you…

Sit back, grab yourself a a drink (why not a Baileys? It is Christmas after all!), pop in your headphones and listen to Lisa McInerney read from her 2016 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction winner The Glorious Heresies.

Lisa’s wonderful debut follows how one messy murder affects the lives of five misfits who exist on the fringes of Ireland’s post-crash society. Ryan is a fifteen-year-old drug dealer desperate not to turn out like his alcoholic father Tony, whose obsession with this unhinged next-door neighbour threatens to ruin him and his family.

Listen in now and lose yourself amongst Lisa’s motley crew of characters for a few minutes this afternoon.
