Anne Enright and Andrew O’Hagan: Actress

Anne Enright’s novel ‘Actress’ tells the story of the relationship between Irish theatre legend Katherine O'Dell and her daughter Norah, as told by Norah herself. Early stardom in Hollywood, triumphs and tragedies on the stages of Dublin and London, and a career unravelling into infamy and eventual insanity are vividly evoked in a brilliant novel about mothers, daughters, secrets and the corrosiveness of fame.

Enright, author of six previous novels including Booker-winning ‘The Gathering’, talks to Andrew O’Hagan, editor-at-large for the London Review of Books (LRB) and author of many works of fiction and non-fiction, most recently ‘The Secret Life: Three True Stories’.
