The EFACIS Irish Itinerary Podcast: Evelyn Conlon in conversation with M. Teresa Caneda-Cabrera

In her conversation with M. Teresa Caneda-Cabrera, Evelyn Conlon discusses the impact of the lockdowns and her aversion to ‘doomscrolling’; being a writer who is a feminist and being political by engaging in stories that are not considered the norm; using literature to dip into the corridors of truth while history sticks to the facts; reworking Joyce’s story ‘Two Gallants’; and being more Irish when you are away from Ireland. The author also reads two excerpts from her work.The podcast can be accessed here
