The Light of Evening: A Novel

Edna O'Brien
In conversation with Vanessa Place
October 24, 2006

The great Irish novelist–known as a pioneer for her frank portrayals of women–discusses her daring new work that explores the unbreakable bond between mother and child. The program begins with a special introduction by Anjelica Huston.

“O’Brien is a storyteller, an Irish story-teller, one of an ancient tradition of storytellers, people who tell the truth.” — Thomas Cahill, Los Angeles Times Book Review
