Max Porter & Sarah Moss in Conversation with Sinéad Gleeson

With Sinad Gleeson

**'***Ghost Wall *is a burnished gem of a book, brief and brilliant, and with it Moss's star is firmly in the ascendant' The Guardian

'Shimmering with the uncanny, it's a remarkable feat of literary virtuosity.'* The Sunday Times (on *Lanny by Max Porter)

HomePlace is delighted to welcome two of the UK's most exciting novelists, whose work, like Heaney's, is rooted in landscape and place.

Max Porter's first novel, Grief is the Thing with Feathers, won the Sunday Times/Peter, Fraser + Dunlop Young Writer of the Year, the International Dylan Thomas Prize and was shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award and the Goldsmiths Prize. Capturing the public imagination, Complicit and Wayward's production of Grief is the Thing with Feathers starring Cillian Murphy met with great acclaim when performed in Dublin last year. Max's second novel, Lanny,was published in April.

Sarah Moss was educated at the University of Oxford and is currently professor of creative writing at the University of Warwick. She is the author of four other novels - Cold Earth, Night Waking, which was selected for the Fiction Uncovered Prize in 2011, Bodies of Light. Ghost Wall, with its evocation of ancestry and the natural world, has been longlisted for the 2019 Women's Prize for Fiction.

Max and Sarah will be in conversation with Sinad Gleeson, whose collection of essays - Constellations - will be published in April.
