John Boyne, one of Ireland’s most respected contemporary writers and author of many acclaimed books, such as The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and The Heart’s Invisible Furies, returns with a “deliciously dark” new novel. A Ladder to the Sky is a roman-à-clef of the literary world, full of ambition, betrayal and scandal. Unafraid to tackle provocative themes, Boyne will discuss the inspiration behind the book, and his new YA novel My Brother’s Name is Jessica, with Paul Millar.
