Two exciting voices in Irish fiction discuss the heartbreak and hope of modern life, and what lies beneath the surface when writing women.
Acclaimed novelist and playwright Lucy Caldwell’s new short story collection Intimacies exquisitely charts the steps and missteps of young women trying to find their place in the world. Her stories of love, loss and exile, new beginnings and lives lived away from ‘home’ also includes other women who could be guiding lights, such as Monica Lewinsky and Sinéad O’Connor. Already established as an award-winning writer for children and young adults, Deirdre Sullivan’s I Want to Know That I Will Be Okay is a dark, glittering collection that blends genres to explore the trauma and power that reside in women’s bodies.
The authors will be in conversation with journalist and author Anna Carey.
