A Conversation With Writer Colm Tóibín on the ‘Close Imagining’ of Fiction

The Irish writer, Colm Toibin

Colm Toibin has always been the most subtle writer. When I finished reading The Heather Blazing I went straight to page one and read it again. I doubted my reading skills; I thought I had missed something. I had; I was waiting for bits novelistic drama, a murder perhaps, a fight, but Toibin is not like tha. Thi story is the most gentle story of familial love where men find it so difficult to tell each other how they feel. Tobin makes drama from the everyday. Here is an interesting convesation with Toibin where he talks about his writing, how he writes, what a novelist needs, and how he is always thinking of the reader. Just click on the link below. I hope you enjoy it.
