Had such a blast night in conversation with Paddy O'Reilly about her beautiful novel Other Houses at The Chestnut Tree Bookshop. It was such a lovely bookish night to talk about the themes of class, women in class, the voyeurism we feel in being in other people's houses.
Thank you Paddy for inviting me and Chestnut Tree Bookshop for hosting such a lovely event. It was my first table discussion and it felt so lovely and inclusive.
It has been so long since I have been out that it was such a pleasure to be in the world. Thank you Jodi Wiley for coming and taking photos for me. And thank you Affirm Press for your support and producing such a beautiful hardcover of Paddy's book. It is so tactile and such a lovely artefact.
Was featured on the In Their Own Write blog about my writing process. Off the page with Amra Pajalic. Read it here.
So excited about my upcoming In Conversation Event with Paddy O'Reilly at Chestnut Tree on the 21 April. Book via link. Copies of The Cuckoo's Song will be available to purchase on the night.
