Na hAgallaimh Imram: Diarmuid Johnson

IMRAM

48'26"

Sa tsraith seo is déanaí d’agallaimh IMRAM le scríbhneoirí suaithinseacha ár linne, labhraíonn Tristan Rosenstock le triúr scríbhneoirí Gaeilge atá ag obair lasmuigh d’Éirinn. Craolfar iad ar an 3ú Nollaig ar aghaidh.

Is file, úrscéalaí, ceoltóir agus físealaíontóir é Diarmuid Johnson. Tá cáil ar na hathinsintí atá déanta aige ar sheanscéalta, an leabhar is déanaí acu Éadaoin, ceann de mhórscéalta grá an domhain. Baineann an leabhar Seacht dTír, Seacht dTeanga lena chuid taistil mar cheoltóir fáin sa Pholainn, staidéar sa Ghearmáin agus a chinniúint á lorg aige sa Róimh agus sa Bhruiséil; saol ar an imeall, saol éigse agus ceoil.

In this latest of IMRAM’s series of interviews with leading writers, Tristan Rosenstock talks to three Irish language writers working outside of Ireland. Launched and available online from Friday 10 December onwards. 

Diarmuid Johnson is a poet, novelist, musician and visual artist. He has just finished the critically acclaimed Tara Trilogy, a creative exploration of old Irish literature with Éadaoin, one of the most famous of Gaelic love stories. His latest book is Seacht dTír, Seacht dTeanga, a travel memoir that tells of his life wandering Poland as a traditional musician, studying in Germany, and seeking his destiny in Rome and Brussels – and a story of life on the margins, one of poetry and song.
