Timothy O'Grady Talk @ Masters of Tradition 2019
Thursday, 22 August 2019, 3.30pm
I Could Read the Sky is Timothy’s third book. It has been toured intermittently as an event of words and music.
‘The book goes on in a way that other books of mine, at least for now, have not. It has a life particularly in the West, where there is hardly a house that has evaded the wounds brought about by emigration. The book feels to me as if it’s not so much me talking as all those people I spoke with and remembered. Some of them built the roads and buildings of England. They felt glory and loss. People want to know about them, whether from this book or some other source, and when they learn they are touched.’ Timothy O’Grady
