Malachi O'Doherty answers thirteen questions in a Booker's Dozen.


TPQ: What are you currently reading?

MOD: Cuckoo by Linda Anderson. 

TPQ: Best book you have ever read?

MOD: Today I would say Cuckoo by Linda Anderson. I'm impressionable that way.

TPQ: A must-read before you die?

MOD: All the books I bought and didn't get round to. Michel Tournier's Gemini is one of them.

TPQ: A preference for fact or fiction?

MOD: I want to say fiction but I read more non fiction and poetry too.

TPQ: Favourite female author?

MOD: Linda Anderson.

TPQ: Favourite male author?

MOD: I wish I could say Will Hutton but I've not read a book by him. Thomas Paul Burgess and Richard O'Rawe were the last male novelists to really excite me. If you need just one name, toss a coin.

TPQ: First book you ever read?

MOD: The Mystery of Jan Gant's Treasure.

TPQ: Favourite childhood author?

MOD: I wish I knew. The book was about a group of friends holidaying on an island. One of them invented the Seethebottomoscope

TPQ: Any book you point blank refuse to read?

MOD: No.

TPQ: Any author you point blank refuse to read?

MOD: No.

TPQ: Pick a book to give to somebody so that they would more fully understand you.

MOD: I Was A Teenage Catholic by Malachi O'Doherty. I know that sounds gratuitous but you did ask, and I did write to try to understand and explain myself.

TPQ: Last book you gave as a present?

MOD: Beatlebone by Kevin Barry - no not That Kevin Barry. 

TPQ: Book you would most like to see turned into a movie?

MOD: Northern Heist by Richard O'Rawe.

Malachi O'Doherty is a writer and Broadcaster. His latest book is Fifty Years On.

  3. Very disappointing. I was hoping for more as it seems Malachi is a vociferous reader.

    1. I enjoyed it - there hasn't been one yet that I have not enjoyed including the bundle awaiting publication. I always find it interesting to see what people are reading
