The literature of loss has a rich history. Colm Tóibín’s new book, Nora Webster, is infused with the grief he suffered following the death of his father, though told through the perspective of a mother. The setting is his home town in Ireland at a time of political and personal turmoil. Many of the events in the novel are autobiographical, though filtered through fiction. Colm Tóibín is a multi-award winning writer. His other books include Brooklyn (soon to be released as a film) and The Testament of Mary. Chaired by Claire Armitstead, Head of Books, Guardian and Observer. - See more at: http://www.charleston.org.uk/whats-on/festivals/the-charleston-festival/...
