Irish author Anne Enright writes often of families—which is to say, of dysfunction, loyalty, anger, pain, vulnerability and love—without succumbing to clichés. She was awarded the Man Booker Prize in 2007 for her novel The Gathering; was made a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 2010; and earned the Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction in 2012 for The Forgotten Waltz. As a guest of NYPL, Enright, whose last book was the critically hailed novel The Green Road, will offer insight into the richness of her work.
