WATCH: Kevin Barry in the Hot Press Storeroom

The rakish Limerick scribe is reading from his new book, Beatlebone

The Hot Press Storeroom was delighted the other day to welcome Limerick author Kevin Barry who treated us to a reading from his latest tome, Beatlebone.

The silver-tongued devil that he is, Kevin has produced an ‘audible audio edition’ of the book for “the lucrative - I hope! - Christmas market."

Don’t forget that he’s also co-curated the excellent Winter Pages anthology of contemporary Irish writing.
