Award-winning author, David Park, one of the most important voices in contemporary Irish writing, has written nine previous books including The Light of Amsterdam, which was shortlisted for the 2014 International IMPAC Prize, and, most recently, The Poets' Wives, selected as Belfast's Choice for One City One Book 2014. David’s new novel, Travelling in a Strange Land, is a psychologically astute, expertly crafted portrait of a father's inner life and a family in crisis.

David will be joined by photographer, Sonya Whitefield, whose exhibition gives us her personal response to Travelling a Strange Land.

In conversation with Malachi O’Doherty

“An extraordinary novel, at once startling and quietly brilliant. David Park is a one of Ireland's great novelists and this is, perhaps, his best.” Roddy Doyle
