Renowned for his gift of language and signature Irish wit, Delaney's work has, so often, scrutinized the nature of the spoken word.

Best-selling author of Shannon, Tipperary and Dublin, he has been a Booker Prize judge, and master interviewer of the great literary names of our time. Delaney has been called "the most eloquent man in the world" by NPR's Scott Simon.

Set in Ireland in 1932, Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show is more than just a novel for fans of Irish culture and historical fiction. Filled with humor and social observation, the book is an entertaining read for those that love theater or politics.

In the current phase of his work, Delaney is writing a series of novels exploring his native Ireland's history in the 20th century, one decade at a time. Like all his books, they are multi-layered and aim to be read on a number of levels.

This event is part of Greenwich Library's ongoing author series. For more information, please call Marianne Weill at (203) 622-7933.
