For the Good Times: David Keenan and Bill DrummondWednesday 27 February 2019, 7 p.m. · 74 minutes
David Keenan’s For the Good Times (Faber), set in Belfast during The Troubles, pursues four friends battling for an identity in a neighbourhood harangued by violence and religious intensity. The book highlights the complexity of believing in a cause whilst indulging in the spoils of amoral days. Keenan’s second novel is an urgent and experimental follow up to This is Memorial Device (Faber).
Keenan was in conversation with artist and musician, Bill Drummond.
