Nomad Theatre Network join forces once more with Pat McCabe for the publishing of his upcoming novel “POGUEMAHONE” by Unbound Publishers. The book, the author’s first for Unbound, is McCabe’s 14th since he burst onto the scene with “The Butcher Boy” (Picador) in 1992, racking up two Booker Prize nominations and a host of prizes during his career so far.

Pogeumahone – Gaelic for “kiss my arse” is billed as his biggest and most ambitious book to date, “a wild, 600-page ballad, narrated in a kind of free verse monologue by Dan Fogarty, an Irishman living in England, who is looking after his sister Una, now 70 and suffering dementia in a care home in Margate”

In advance of its publication, Nomad Theatre Network’s Padraic McIntyre sits down for an in-depth interview with McCabe to discuss the new novel, the Covid 19 crisis for the Arts and where he sees the Arts going post-pandemic.
