A few years ago I was delighted to take part in Neil Donnelly’s documentary on Irish writer Aidan Higgins edited by Seamus Callagy. The documentary premiered in the Irish Film Institute and this week aired on RTE. If you didn’t catch it, watch it here on playback. (I appear briefly in Part Three discussing Dog Days with other Kildare writers)
For more background and information about this documentary take a read of my 2019 Writers Chat with Neil.
Seamus Callagy writes for RTE about his experience on the documentary.
Watching the documentary has prompted me to return and re-read the extensive and expansive prose of Higgins and to explore Alannah Hopkin’s A Very Strange Man: A Memoir of Aidan Higgins.
