Eventbrite - The White Hart Speaker Series: COLM TÓIBÍN

Bestselling, award-winning ​author ​Colm Tóibín ​will talk with Joe Donahue of WAMC about his spectacularly audacious, violent, vengeful, lustful, and instantly compelling​ new novel - HOUSE OF NAMES - a retelling of the story of Clytemnestra​ ​and her children.​ ​​

“I have been acquainted with the smell of death.” So begins Clytemnestra’s tale of her own life in ancient Mycenae, the legendary Greek city from which her husband King Agamemnon left when he set sail with his army for Troy. Clytemnestra rules Mycenae now, along with her new lover Aegisthus, and together they plot the bloody murder of Agamemnon on the day of his return after nine years at war.

Colm Tóibín is the author of seven novels, including The Master, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize; Brooklyn, winner of the Costa Book Award; The Testament of Mary, and Nora Webster, as well as two story collections. Three times shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Tóibín lives in Dublin and New Yor​k.​
