Kilkenny Arts Festival Literature events are fantastic. Have been to great events with Colm Toibin, Peter Murphy, Eugene McCabe, Anne Enright, Kamile Shamsie & Sebastian Barry in the past. Shame I'll be missing it this year for the first time in years. I swear Colm Toibin (the curator) was beginning to think I was a stalker!
