TLRH | Imagining the Worst: Fiction & True Crime
Tuesday, 13 April 2021, 7 – 8pm
A roundtable discussion with Eoin McNamee, Catherine Ryan Howard, & Dr. Eva Burke. This event is presented by the School of English and the Trinity Long Room Hub.
What does it mean to write fiction inspired by true-life crime? How does the literary imagination engage with, and transform, real-life tragic events? Can fiction tell us things about true crime that nonfiction can’t? Is it ethical to re-imagine actual crimes for fictional purposes? What is it about particular crimes that inspires fictionalisation? These are the questions raised in this fascinating roundtable discussion, part of the 2021 School of English Online Evening Lectures Series ‘Murder & Other Fine Arts: True Crime & Literature.’ Featuring Eoin McNamee (author of Resurrection Man, 12:23, and The Blue Tango), Catherine Ryan Howard (author of The Liar’s Girl, Rewind, and The Nothing Man) and Dr. Eva Burke (Trinity College Dublin, author of articles on crime fiction and domestic noir).
