Event description

Description

Bestselling, award-winning Colm Tóibín discusses House of Names a retelling of the story of Clytemnestra and her children, a family at war with itself. This modern version of a classic Greek tragedy gives this character new life, so that we not only believe Clytemnestra’s thirst for revenge, but applaud it. Tóibínreveals the mind of one of Greek myth’s most powerful villains to reveal the love, lust, and pain she feels.

Colm Tóibín is the author of seven novels, including The Master, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize; Brooklyn, winner of the Costa Book Award; The Testament of Mary, and Nora Webster, as well as two story collections. Three times shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Tóibín lives in Dublin and New York.
