I Could Read the Sky @ Masters of Tradition 2019
Timothy O’Grady’s I Could Read The Sky traces a journey from the beauty of the traditional way of life to the energy of modern urban existence. It has its origin in travels in the west of Ireland and twenty years spent in Irish London. It won the Encore Award for the best second novel of the year, was Ireland’s nomination for the Ariston Prize for best literary work, was made into a film by Nichola Bruce, and provoked songs by Mark Knopfler and Padraig Stevens. It was launched to the accompaniment of music and has since toured intermittently as an event of words and music.
