The 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction winner Andrew Sean Greer sits down to talk to Noelle McCarthy about his latest, award-winning novel Less, his past work, and the "the wisdom to be found in the fabric of a life".

Greer's most recent novel follows a 50-something year old gay writer travelling around the world and looking for meaning. The Pulitzer judges called the book "a generous book, musical in its prose and expansive in its structure and range, about growing older and the essential nature of love."

Greer's work generally focuses on the ideas of time, loss, love and family, and has been praised by the likes of fellow Pulitzer Prize winner John Updike, The Washington Post and the New York Times. His stories have appeared in Esquire, The Paris Review and The New Yorker and he's held a Guggenheim Fellowship and taught at several universities including the Iowa Writers Workshop.
