One of Northern Ireland’s most exciting writers talks about The Fire Starters, winner of the EU Prize for Literature 2019. Set in Belfast 16 years after the Troubles, the novel tells the story of two fathers facing a crisis during a summer of deep social unrest. It’s a stirring look at parenthood, love, sacrifice, magic and wonder. [715]
