Meet Ireland's literary superstar: Colm Tóibín about women, music, and his homeland!

Colm Tóibín is an award-winning Irish writer of fiction, nonfiction and poetry. His novels include 'The Master', Nora Webster' and 'Brooklyn' (which has been turned into a Oscar-nominated film adaption!). To Colm Toibin, writing is "like music, it’s based on melody. It’s based on rhythm.” Before readers engage their intellect, he tells us in this exclusive interview, a deeper urge should entice them to turn the page - as if they were following a rhythm. Born in southeast Ireland in 1955, Colm Tóibín is one of the most celebrated English language writers of our time. DW Books meets a great author and a deeply likable individual: Colm Tóibín about women, music, and his homeland Ireland.

The Moth Poetry Prize is Now Open

An international art and literature magazine from Ireland, featuring poetry, fiction, art & interviews. ‘I skim the serious American journals where I send work, but I actually read The Moth and I aspire to it. My friend the nun is shocked, I think, by the work … but she is reading it too, in her Italian cloister. She is probably praying for you.’ a subscriber ‘The Moth is a small and very pleasing work of art ... it even has a collectable feel ... The literary selection on offer is superb ... with interviews which capture vivid and readable portraits of each author.’ Irish Arts Review ‘The Moth has always been a beautiful thing to behold on our magazine shelves ... It manages to have gravitas and coolness simultaneously.’ National Poetry Library (UK) ‘The Moth is a beautiful creature.’ David Mitchell
