RTÉ Arena Live with Claire Keegan
A special live recording of RTÉ Radio 1's arts and culture programme Arena. Presented Seán Rocks will talk to very special guest Claire Keegan about her new publication, So Late in the Day, along with her bestselling books Small Things Like These and Foster (the source material for Oscar-nominated Irish film An Cailín Ciúin).
About So Late in the Day:
After an uneventful Friday at the Dublin office, Cathal faces into the long weekend and takes the bus home. There, his mind agitates over a woman named Sabine with whom he could have spent his life, had he acted differently. All evening, with only the television and a bottle of champagne for company, thoughts of this woman and others intrude — and the true significance of this particular date is revealed.
From one of the finest writers working today, Keegan’s new story asks if a lack of generosity might ruin what could be between men and women. Is it possible to love without sharing?
