Colm Tóibín: House of Names

Hosted by

When Colm Tóibín talks about his new novel House of Names, he discusses the themes (of loss, betrayal, weak father, strong mother, loss of home, world wandering) that have haunted his other novels. Here, he finds, in adapting Greek tragedy, a home for all of his old concerns and room for new ones, too.
