Michèle Forbes

Guest at the 2019 Books & Music Festival

In his first novel, Ghost Moth, Michèle Forbes was inspired by his own mother. In the second- Edith and Olivier- it is his grandfather who serves as a model for the character of Oliver to evoke the end of a world, that of the small itinerant music hall which collapses in favor of more modern pleasures like cinema. Michèle Forbes, who was an actress before becoming a novelist, immersed herself in family memories and Irish archives to write this fascinating and poignant novel.
