The View Presents: Peter Sheridan special
Tonight's edition of The View is a special interview with Dublin author Peter Sheridan. He has spent most of his life writing, directing and collaborating in the theatre, and he also directed the films 'Borstal Boy' and the short 'The Breakfast'. His first book, '44: A Dublin Memoir' was nominated for the Irish Times/Aer Lingus Non-fiction Literature Prize, and he followed this with 'Forty-Seven Roses', inspired by his mother's courage in keeping her family together against the odds. His new book, 'Big Fat Love', explores similar themes but in clearly fictional terms. Set in Dublin's docklands, it tells the story of Philo, all 240 tattooed pounds of her, who turns up at the local convent seeking refuge from her husband Tommo.
