Irish writer Anne Enright’s The Forgotten Waltz is the followup to her international bestseller The Gathering, winner of the 2007 Man Booker Prize. She discusses her work with New Letters on the Air host Angela Elam.

As with The Gathering, Enright offers a momentous drama of everyday life: the volatile connections between people and a wry take on families, marriage, and brittle middle age. In Gina Moynihan she gives us yet another unforgettable heroine on a journey of the heart.

Anne Enright has published essays, short stories, a non-fiction book, and four novels. Prior to her writing career she produced and directed for television. She lives in Bray, County Wicklow, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
