From 'A Long Long Way', his Booker shortlisted novel about the Irish soldiers who fought for Britain during the First World War to his Donal McCann starring hit-play, 'The Steward of Christendom'; from his first Costa Book of the Year novel 'The Secret Scripture' to his second, 'Days Without End', a decade later, Sebastian Barry's writing career has been as long and varied as it has extraordinary. Intimate, revealing and generous of heart, these three lectures - written and delivered as part of his three year tenure as the Laureate for Irish fiction - reflect on his life and career so far, some of the formative moments and people he's met along the way, and the ongoing importance of creativity.
