Van Morrison celebration: Both Longley and O'Brien repeatedly described the songs they were reading as poems. | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
Irish poet Michael Longley promised a unique night, and "Van Morrison
presents an evening of words & music" was certainly that, not least
because we heard Edna O'Brien reading Madame George as a poem.

A Conversation with Dan Gunn ed. Beckett's Letters

Lydia Davis: To start off with, Dan, I have a long question. I’d like to
ask you something I’ve been curious about for years, actually. It has to do
with your work and your life. You teach full time at the American
University of Paris, with all that entails, including directing the
University’s Center for Writers and Translators and editing its beautifully
produced Cahier Series on translation. In addition, you have, for many
years now, been one of four editors in the monumental (and highly
labor-intensive) ongoing project of producing a multi-volume selection of
Samuel Beckett’s vast correspondence, three fat volumes of which have to
date appeared. You regularly give public lectures or take part in
conferences on this ongoing project as well as on other subjects as various
as Muriel Spark, the Scottish Gothic, translation, Primo Levi, etc. You
have written a number of articles on writers including Flann O’Brien,
Georges Perec, Thomas Bernhard, to name just a few. You have translated
numerous works from the French, and written a study of psychoanalysis and
fiction, as well as what I found to be a very engaging and
thought-provoking—not to speak of amusing—memoir of your last days of
psychoanalysis. As if this were not enough, you are also a writer of
fiction, with, now, three novels to your credit, the latest being the
imminently forthcoming Emperor of Ice-Cream. You also have a life quite
apart from literature, of course—family, friends, dinners, outings to
concerts and museums, travel. So, my question is, how do you do it?
