Jeanette Winterson at the Dublin Writer’s Festival 2012

Following on from my previous post where I mentioned one of the books I have recently read is ‘Why be Happy when you could be Normal?’ by Jeanette Winterson, I decided to post this video.

It is taken from the website of the International Literature Festival, as it is now called.   You will have to set aside an hour to watch it, but if you just want a flavour of  her book, she reads from two of the chapters, so it would give you an idea.

I find her funny, intelligent and a fantastic writer.  You can see how much the Dublin audience love her too, although she does get very frustrated with some of the long winded questions (and who can blame her?!).

Anyway, hope you enjoy it.   Click below to watch the video:
