“Writer’s Block” with John Dillon, in THE GLOSS

In one of Ireland’s most popular literary blogs, Writer’s Block, Sophie Grenham gives the low-down on The Scent of Eucalyptus by John Dillon, describing it as, “a gem of a book” and “a delectable coming-of-age story that’s thematically reminiscent of Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited”.

The author gives readers a little background information about himself, his illustrious family (his great-grandfather was John Blake Dillon, of The Young Irelanders movement), and describes his love of books and his writing practices.  A excellent, seven-minute read, click here  or on the image on the left to read the full text.
