'Brooklyn' Author Colm Tóibín On Writing And Yeats
There’s a lot said in very few words in Irish author Colm Tóibín’s writing. His slim book, “Brooklyn,” was adapted into an Oscar-nominated film last year. He’s also one of today’s most celebrated Irish novelists, thanks to books like “The Blackwater Lightship” and “The Master.”
Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti talks with Tóibín about his work, and about the violence in the poetry of W. B. Yeats.
- Colm Tóibín, Irish writer. He’s also a professor at the University of Manchester and Columbia University.
