In this session meet author Mary O’Donnell in conversation with Nessa O’Mahony about Giving Shape to the Moment, edited by Maria Elena Jaime de Pablos. This is the first book to provide a critical assessment of Mary’s work. The essays engage with O’Donnell’s writing across multiple genres and explore the themes and preoccupations that have characterised her oeuvre. Alongside their creative work, both authors have been steady and continuing voices for many years within the world of poetry, theatre criticism, book reviewing, essay writing, radio broadcasts and cultural commentary. Mary’s most recent collection Empire (Arlen House) was released in September 2018 and Nessa recently made her first foray into the world of crime writing in The Branchman.
