Burning Books—Wendy Erskine

Wendy Erskine tells Ruth McKee which books she’d save if her house was on fire in the latest episode of Burning Books.

Author Wendy Erskine talks to Books Ireland editor Ruth McKee about Molly Keane’s Good Behaviour, Ian Hunter’s Diary of a Rock and Roll Star and how reading a book when you’re twenty is very different to encountering it at fifty—as she reveals which books she would save if her house was on fire.

Wendy Erskine’s first short story collection, Sweet Home, was published by The Stinging Fly Press in Sept 2018, and Picador in 2019.

Her new collection Dance Move will be published by Picador in February 2022.
