City of Books


Apr 8, 2020

Writer Carlo Gébler, son of Edna O'Brien, talks about One City One Book choices in the second of four weekly City of Books podcast extras. On his mother's classic trilogy, The Country Girls, he says it stands the test of time because it “talks about the truth of human experience”.

His experience as a prison teacher has been life-enhancing: “Prison has been my university. It has taught me more than I have learned anywhere else.”

And he draws parallels between some of his own work and Tatty by Christine Dwyer Hickey, Dublin's 2020 One City One Book choice. 

Produced and presented by Martina Devlin

Music by Daragh Dukes
