Novel Ideas: Mark Lynch

Debbie McGrory interviews the writer Mark Lynch about his debut novel, The War of Zero Sum.

“This novel is a work of alternative history and of fiction. The author’s intention is to imagine how the Irish Troubles might have developed differently if the historical context of the late 1960’s was significantly altered. Any sectarianism or political extremism in this story do not represent the views of the author, they are an attempt to create realistic characters who may hold intolerant views and beliefs”.
