Rencontre avec Anne Enright

Rencontre avec Anne Enright

Appointed as the inaugural Laureate of Irish Fiction (2015-2018), Anne Enright is known internationally for her novel The Gathering which won the 2007 Man Booker Prize.  Tonight she returns to Paris for the launch of The Green Road published in French translation as L’herbe maudite by Actes Sud.  The story delves into the lives of Rosaleen Madigan and her children, who leave the west of Ireland for lives in Dublin, New York and Africa. As Belinda McKeon wrote in her Irish Times review, Anne Enright “briskly and grinningly grabs hold of” the clichés of what it means to be Irish “in such an unashamed fashion - the Mammy, the home place, the emotionally banjaxed siblings, the booze and the boom and the pill and the pope – as to be provocative”
