Louise O'Neill

Louise O'Neill is the Irish young adult author of Asking For It and Only Ever Yours. The Guardian called her the "best YA fiction writer alive today" and the New York Times called Asking For It "riveting and essential." She has won all the awards, and Asking For It was a top-ten bestselling book in Ireland in 2016. This week on the show she chats with us about Irish writers, writing for an American audience, maintaining focus while writing about serious issues for younger readers, and her own struggles with eating disorders growing up.
