LKLadyPod #33 Caroline O’Donoghue: Reliving The Teenage Experience

Caroline O’Donoghue is the author of two novels, Scenes of a Graphic Nature and Promising Young Women – not to be mistaken with Promising Young Woman (singular) starring Carey Mulligan, unless you want to give Caroline an Oscar that is.

Ann Blake and Emma Langford chat with the Cork-born novelist about the music that defined their youth, the regression to their teens due to the pandemic, the fear of being a bad role model and drawing on real life (or not) in making art.

Caroline is also a columnist, the co-host of the Sentimental Garbage podcast, and author of “All Our Hidden Gifts”, the first in a series of young adult novels.
