Barry McCrea & The First Verse! Interview by Helena Dahlgren.

14:00 - 15:00
The Uppsala International Authors Stage at the City Library.

Barry McCreaBarry McCrea is an Irish writer and academic who is currently professor of Literature at Notre Dame University.

In 2005 he published an award-winning novel; The First Verse, about a young man who gets pulled into a world of darkness and literature at Trinity College in Dublin. The novel is based around the classical concept of Sortes Vergilianae where advice or predictions of the future are sought by interpreting passages from literature.

The novel explores Dublin’s every corner, including a first-of-its-kind portrayal of its thriving gay nightlife, through the eyes of a young man seduced by a secret society’s ancient reading rituals, based on the sortes virgilianae. In brilliant prose, author Barry McCrea gives readers a psychologically gripping tale set within the intertwining worlds of literature and the living.
