EASON BOOK CLUB BOOK OF THE MONTH
In association with The Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk 106-108fm
The Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk 106-108 FM partners with the Eason Book Club to help us select our Book of the Month every month. On the first Monday of each month, Pat and his panel which is made up of former Fianna Fáil TD and author Mary O’Rourke, singer songwriter Brian Kennedy and actress Catherine Lynch, pick the Eason Book of the Month from a shortlist of four books compiled by the Eason book team. In the last week of every month the panel will return to discuss the book on air and engage in a lively debate on the characters and themes of the chosen book.
The much anticipated first novel in sixteen years from Northern Irish author Bernard MacLaverty, ‘Midwinter Break’ is a beautifully observed account of a retired couple who attempt to mend their broken marriage over a weekend in Amsterdam. A masterful new novel from one of Ireland’s most acclaimed writers.
