La Médiathèque rencontre… Brendan Graham

Brendan Graham is an Irish novelist and composer. He has published a historical trilogy: The Whitest Flower (1998), described as a ‘documentary novel’ on the Great Famine and a set text at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; The Element of Fire (2001); and The Brightest Day, The Darkest Night (2004). Rolf Løvland was inspired by The Whitest Flower to write the music for “You Raise Me Up”, a huge international hit for Irish boyband Westlife; Graham wrote the lyrics.
