Ian Weir - SPEAKEASY || Daniel O'Thunder: A Novel

September 2009

In this knock-out episode of Speakeasy, John Burns meets Ian Weir at Vancouver's Granville Island Public Market to talk about his debut novel Daniel O'Thunder. Set in Dickensian London, the story is one of faith, fighting and fine madness. Weir's superbly developed characters and impeccable sense of place during this dark era shine through in the prose. Here he explains, among other things, how his background as a screen writer helped him nail the period dialogue and how his passion for boxing helped fuel the climax of the book.
