Tue 04 Jun 2019
7:00pm at Mr B's
Ticket includes author talk, glass of wine and signing and 15% off books on the night.
Insightful, sharply clever and raw, Emilie Pine’s essays are the reading experience that you won’t know you’re looking for until they, like an unexpected gift, come your way. On June 4th we suggest you treat yourself to the chance to delve right into them.
Emilie’s first collection, “Notes to Self”, knocked us for six. From stories of growing up with an addicted parent, through tumultuous teenage years in London, to the grief of infertility, she transforms the mess of personal experience into poignant, witty and crystal-clear writing, moving yet refreshingly free of sentimentality and open to readers from all walks of life. First published to great acclaim by the Irish independent imprint Tramp Press, “Notes to Self” has quickly garnered so much praise that it’s now been published by Penguin in the UK. We’re thrilled to welcome Emilie for what we’re convinced will be an unusual, illuminating and fascinating conversation at Mr B’s.
Join us for a chat about that strange beast called the ‘essay’, attitudes to women’s life choices in contemporary Ireland, and the personal made public, with one of the most exciting and original non-fiction writers to be published this year.
