Public Interview: Liz Nugent and Ali Land at Murder One

I’m very much looking forward to interviewing Liz Nugent and Ali Land at Smock Alley on November 2nd, a public interview which opens the Murder One crime fiction festival. To wit:
Domestic Noir takes as its premise the belief that the domestic sphere can be a dark and dangerous environment for women. Two fresh and highly-successful new voices discuss with Declan Burke how their work fits into the genre.
  Ali Land’s debut novel Good Me Bad Me became a Sunday Times and international bestseller. It was short-listed for Dead Good Reader Awards and for the Crime Writers Association New Blood Dagger. It also became a Richard and Judy book club pick. Ali is currently working on her second novel.
  Liz Nugent has become one of Ireland’s most popular and successful novelists. With her three intriguing and deeply sinister novels, Unravelling Oliver, Lying in Wait, and most recently Skin Deep, she has built an enormous following both at home and abroad.
