Toibin started out somewhat quiet and stumbling over his words, but soon found his way and was charming, and funny. Plenty of time was given to ask questions, but initially NO ONE raised their hands. Then slowly a few did - so I don't understand the other comments saying people weren't given time to ask questions. I didn't go to the reception (though I wish I had) as I was very very tired.
I will definitely go again to the Folger.
