Launch of ‘Nora’ by Nuala O’Connor

MoLI, in association with New Island Books, is delighted to host the online launch of Nuala O’Connor’s latest novel, Nora.  To celebrate the publication, the author will be in conversation with Katherine McSharry, Deputy Director of the National Library of Ireland. 

Described by Edna O’Brien as ‘a lively and loving paean to the indomitable Nora Barnacle’, O’Connor’s new novel follows Nora Barnacle from her first meeting with James Joyce, through her years in Dublin and later across Europe. The novel tracks the Joyces as Nora is torn between their intense and unwavering desire for each other, and the constant anxiety of living hand to mouth, often made worse by her husband’s compulsion for company and attention.

MoLI is delighted to partner with the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris, where Nuala wrote part of her novel during a residency.
