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 Rory Cowan, star of Mrs Brown’s Boys, pick the Eason Book of the Month from a shortlist of four books compiled by Eason Book Buyer Stephen Boylan. 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.

Sally Rooney has produced an incredibly raw novel exploring friendship, loyalty, love, sex and the challenges of navigating intimate relationships which eschew traditional boundaries. A compelling read, this novel is sure to spark conversation and debate in readers. A new literary voice for Irish millennials, Rooney is an Irish author to watch.
The Ministry of Utmost Happiness
Arundhati Roy makes an eagerly awaited return with ‘The Ministry of Utmost Happiness’, her first novel since the Booker Prize winning and much acclaimed ‘The God of Small Things’.
