IMRAM

48'38"

Cíorann Cathal Póirtéir saol agus saothar cuid de mhórscríbhneoirí ár linne. A series where leading writers discuss their life and work with Cathal Póirtéir.

File den scoth í Biddy Jenkinson (ainm cleite) mar is eol do chách, chomh maith le bheith ina gearrscéalaí agus ina drámadóir. I measc na leabhar uaithi tá Baisteadh GintlíMisOíche Bhealtaine agus Sceilg na Scál. Deirtear mar gheall uirthi ar an suíomh Portráidí: ‘Braitheann an t-údar seo nach ann di. I ngeall air sin bíonn ainm cleite in úsáid aici. Nuair a bhíonn sí ag scríobh is cinnte nach mbíonn sí istigh léi féin agus nuair nach mbíonn sí ag scríobh ní bhíonn sí istigh léi féin ach oiread.’

Biddy Jenkinson (a pseudonym) is a remarkable poet, short story writer and dramatist. Her books include Baisteadh GintlíMisOíche Bhealtaine and Sceilg na Scál. Of her the Irish Times has commented: ‘There is hardly a genre that Jenkinson hasn’t tried, and her range is broad enough that there is something in it to please everyone, from modern mythology to slapstick short stories and forays into crime and detective fiction. She is a jester, a shapeshifter and a polymath.’
