Kevin Barry will also be speaking about his new book Beatlebone based on the true story of John Lennon’s ownership of an island in Clew Bay: John owns a tiny island off the coast of Ireland. Maybe it is there that he can at last outrun the shadows of his past. The tale of a wild journey into the world and a wild journey within, Beatlebone is a mystery box of a novel. It’s a portrait of an artist at a time of creative strife. It is also a sad and beautiful comedy from one of the most gifted stylists writing today.
