New Episode City of Books Podcast with Liz Nugent

Domestic noir doyenne Liz Nugent’s work has been enthused over by Graham Norton, who describes her latest hit Our Little Cruelties as part rollercoaster, part maze.
In this interview for the City of Books podcast with Martina Devlin, Liz talks about coping with pain stemming from a childhood brain haemorrhage, and overcoming challenges large and small – such as typing all her work one handed: “Shakespeare wrote all his plays one-
handed with a feather,” she says.
She also reveals the identity of her favourite fictional antihero (clue: he’s sexy but mean), why she finds it easier to write male characters, and unravels her eclectic career path to becoming a bestselling author of four domestic noir bestsellers.

City of Books is sponsored by Dublin UNESCO City of Literature and Dublin City Council, in association with the Museum of Literature Ireland (MOLI).
