This month on the Stinging Fly podcast, we're taking a little diversion from our usual format to present a lecture by the novelist Paul Lynch. Paul is the author of four internationally acclaimed novels: Beyond the Sea, The Black Snow, Red Sky In Morning, and Grace, which won the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year Award in 2018. He was born in Limerick, raised in Donegal, and currently lives in Dublin with his wife and two children.
This lecture, entitled 'The Dream That Wakes You Up', was commissioned by Words Ireland and delivered – via Zoom – to the Bray Literary Festival in September 2020. You can read this lecture, as well as previous years' lectures by Mia Gallagher and Seán O'Reilly, in full on our website: stingingfly.org.
