Double Bill: Colm O'Regan and Donal Ryan

Author of the extremely popular book of Irish Mammies and “so funny he could reduce a 19th-century Russian novelist to tears” (Hot Press), comedian Colm Regan will share the stage this evening with Donal Ryan whose intimate and darkly comic debut novel The Spinning Heart reveals the human cost of the financial crisis in Ireland.

Both writers have a knack for capturing the day-to-day details that make up ordinary people’s lives and speak reams about the wider context of contemporary Ireland.

Books on sale in Shakespeare and Company and available on the night at the CCI.
