Colm Toibin: Nora Webster

Colm Tóibín belongs to the great tradition of Irish expatriates. In novels like The Master and Brooklyn, the New York–based writer excavates the joys and sorrows of displacement, both physical and metaphorical. Tóibín discusses his latest work of fiction, Nora Webster, which returns us to his homeland and the tumult of family. The director of the Guild Literary Complex, John Rich, joins Tóibín for a conversation.
