Paul Murray in Conversation

Paul Murray attained stardom with 2010’s Skippy Dies, a boarding school tragedy, whose decidedly eclectic fanbase included everyone from Bret Easton Ellis to (reportedly) David Cameron. His first novel in eight years, The Bee Sting, published this month concerns the disintegrating Barnes family – financially strapped parents Dickie and Imelda, and their two tearaway kids – who struggle to keep things together while the world around them takes on an increasingly apocalyptic hue.
