We’re delighted to welcome award-winning author Sebastian Barry to the podcast, reading from his new novel Old God’s Time. Recently retired policeman Tom Kettle is settling into the quiet of his new home, but when two former colleagues turn up at his door with questions about a decades-old case, one which Tom never quite came to terms with, he finds himself pulled into the darkest currents of his past…
A beautiful novel in which nothing is quite as it seems, Old God’s Time is about that which haunts us. Published by independent press Faber, you can buy a special signed Independent Bookshop edition of the book featuring exclusive endpapers through Booka Bookshop.
This podcast is edited and produced by Megan Bay Dorman, and programmed by Matt Casbourne.
