Joseph O’Connor in conversation with Liz Nugent
Joseph O'Connor and Liz Nugent disscuss O'Connor's new novel.
Joseph O’Connor’s new novel, Shadowplay, is a masterful account of the relationship between Bram Stoker and the great actor, Henry Irving, who hires the unremarkable Dublin clerk to help him turn his Lyceum theatre into the greatest playhouse in the world. Through his intense relationships with Irving and the actress, Ellen Terry, Stoker will be inspired to write his masterpiece, Dracula.
