Irish novelist Paul Lynch was awarded the 2023 Booker Prize for Prophet Song, his fearless portrait of Irish society on the brink of tyranny and a mother’s battle to save her family. 

Throwing into sharp relief the social and political anxieties of our times, it has been hailed as ‘a literary manifesto for empathy for those in need and a brilliant, haunting novel that should be placed into the hands of policymakers everywhere’ (Observer). 

Join Lynch as he discusses his propulsive and lyrically rendered cautionary fable, in conversation with Michael Williams.
