Irish Arts Center partners with Books Are Magic to celebrate the release of Molly McCloskey’s new novel, Straying.

From “an extravagantly gifted writer who deserves to be widely read” (Rachel Cusk, The Telegraph), this intimate, quietly stunning novel—a finalist for the Irish Book Award—tells the story of a young American expat who settles in Ireland in the late 1980s, marries, and lives through the consequences of an affair.

Following the reading, Molly will be in conversation with novelist Belinda McKeon.
