Edna O'Brien turning to crime?

by Tom Comiskey

Is Edna O'Brien's next book a crime novel? Her literary agency Ed Victor Ltd has already revealed that The Little Red Chairs will be "about a war criminal masquerading as a healer, who settles in an Irish village".

Industry sources say the Irish author is due to deliver the manuscript of her new book this month, although according to Amazon's listing of The Little Red Chairs it won't be published by Faber & Faber Fiction until 4 February 2016.
