Feel the Fear

Feel the Fear and read it anyway.
This sounds innovative.
I've never read Flann O'Brien.

Our Feel The Fear and Read It Anyway! sessions for Autumn 2011 will tackle Flann O’Brien’s wonderful At Swim-Two-Birds to mark the centenary of one of Ireland’s most original writers. Feel The Fear and Read It Anyway! sessions are designed to give readers a helping hand with those intimidating ‘great works’ that so many give up on or avoid altogether.
You know that there are a host of books out there that you plan to read, that you feel you should read, that people keep talking about – - but somehow you never get round to them. They’re kinda scary. . . Or maybe you’ve tried to read some of these so-called ‘great’ books? Honest - you have – but you can’t stick with them. Can’t make sense of them? You just don’t know what the fuss is about. Why is it so famous? What’s so good about it?
We feel your pain, but relax.. We’ll answer these questions as we take you through the book. We’ll help you to enjoy it, to get a great deal from your reading. To mark Flann O’Brien’s centenary we are focusing on his wonderful comic novel At Swim-Two-Birds, a great classic of Irish modernism. We guarantee you’ll feel the fear and read it anyway!
Dates: Thur October 6th – 6:00PM The Stag’s Head, (Upstairs), Dame Court
