Ardal O’Hanlon talks to Georgina Godwin

Brouhaha

 
Hay Festival 2022 , 

The comedian, writer and star of TV's Father Ted and Death in Paradise introduces his new mystery novel, a razor-sharp, violent and comic satire on Ireland’s tangled politics of memory. Set in a small town on the Irish Border during the uneasy transition to peace, it is full of deadpan characterisation and dark humour, illustrating the oddities, blind spots and petty hypocrisies of everyday life. But it is also about community, compassion, truth and the ideological conflicts that have shaped Irish society for more than a century.
