People of Note - Finuala Dowling

Rodney Trudgeon’s guest on People Of Note this week is the novelist and poet Finuala Dowling, whose latest book, “The Man Who Loved Crocodile Tamers”, has been receiving rave reviews. It is a fascinating book, written in an unusual but fascinating style and which traces the family history. The book weaves fact and fiction together and Rodney asked her about her writing style and about how important poetry is to her. Reviewers speak about the book making them laugh and cry.
