My interview with National Book Award winner, Colum McCann

When Colum McCann won the National Book Award last week, for his wonderful novel, “Let the Great World Spin,” he became the first Irish author to win the award (and dedicated it to his fellow Irish-American, Frank McCourt, who recently died). In July, Colum came to Seattle to read at the Seattle Public Library. Afterward, I shared a couple pints with him and his brother, Ronan, at the Irish pub, Fado, where I asked Colum about the mechanics of his writing life.
