Burning Books—Laura McVeigh

Listen in to the new episode of Burning Books with author Laura McVeigh, when she tells editor Ruth McKee which books she’d save if her house was on fire.

Laura talks about Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, reading in translation, Ways of Seeing by John Berger and how she doesn’t write to a plan.

Author of Lenny, Laura McVeigh, is the latest guest on Burning Books

Laura McVeigh’s debut novel Two Roads was published by John Murray in 2017. Her new book, Lenny (New Island), is a magical tale of family, loss, and the redemptive power of the imagination to heal and survive.
