Description   Irish novelist Edna O'Brien, sitting behind the microphone in an RTÉ radio studio in January 1999. O'Brien was recording a programme in the RTÉ Radio 1 series 'A Giant at My Shoulder'. This was a 52-part series for the millennium, in which fifty-two prominent Irish people discussed the person living or dead, who had the most influence on their lives. Edna O'Brien nominated James Joyce for her programme, broadcast on 25 February 1999.

Edna O'Brien published her first novel 'The Country Girls' in 1960 to considerable controversy. She has published many novels and short stories since then including 'Down by the River' (1997) and 'In the Forest' (2002).
