Collected by Linda Grant
Role: Reader
Listen to podcast on RTE Radio One: The Book Show
In this special hour long episode Sinéad Gleeson speaks to British writer Linda Grant about the life and work of Jean Rhys (1890 – 1979). She is the Dominican born author of many stories and novels set in England, Paris and the Caribbean. They are stories of women who struggle with poverty, alienation, alcoholism and their reliance on (often uncaring) men. Writer Colm O’Shea looks at Rhys’ most famous novel Wide Sargasso Sea – a ‘prequel’ to Jane Eyre – and discusses the world of bedsits and hotels her characters inhabit. We also hear readings of Rhys’ work by the actress Donna Anita Nikolaisen.
