Constellations - Sinéad Gleeson
Moderated by Emily Ridge
How do you tell the story of your own life in a world that is not your own? Irish writer Sinéad Gleeson’s debut collection of essays, Constellations, explores the fierce joy and pain of being alive in a body wracked with decades of illness. In this dazzling and thought-provoking memoir, Gleeson reflects on the ‘constellations’ of her life, touching upon birth, first love, pregnancy, motherhood, sickness, old age, death and more.
Sinéad Gleeson’s essays have been published in Granta, Winter Papers, Gorse and Banshee.
