The buzziest word-of-mouth hit of the past year, The Bee Sting is the latest Booker Prize–nominated triumph by Skippy Dies author Paul Murray. 

The dazzling tragicomedy charts the undoing of a once-prosperous Irish family haunted by the ghosts of the past through the perspective of multiple characters and has been hailed as ‘a 650-page soap opera with a clockwork plot whose delicate mechanism you can’t hear tick’ (Guardian).

Murray appears in Melbourne to introduce his wise, witty and heart-punching saga to Australia, in conversation with Michael Williams.
