The Little Red Chairs: Edna O'Brien and Andrew O'Hagan

A new novel from Edna O'Brien is without question a major literary event, and The Little Red Chairs (Faber) is her first for a decade. A hunted war criminal from the Balkans takes refuge in an isolated village on Ireland's West coast, masquerading as a faith healer, and exercises a fatal attraction over its inhabitants. O'Brien will be reading from and signing her novel, and discussing it with LRB mainstay Andrew O'Hagan.
