A Ghost in the Throat with Doireann Ni Ghriofa


Winner of multiple Irish book awards, Doireann Ní Ghríofa joins us from Ireland to discuss her acclaimed novel. Moving fluidly between past and present, quest and elegy, poetry and those who make it, A Ghost in the Throat is a shapeshifting book: a record of literary obsession; a narrative about the erasure of a people, of a language, of women; a meditation on motherhood and on translation; and an unforgettable story about finding your voice by freeing another’s.
