Negative Space Cristin Leach interviewed by Niall McDowell Venue: An Diseart – Chapel Date: Sunday 20 November 2022 Time: 12.00 – 13.00 IST/GMT Tickets: €8 in advance, €10 on the door This searingly intimate literary debut from top Irish art critic Cristín Leach weaves words and art with an unravelling of self that comes when a marriage breaks. In a multi-layered and incisive narrative, Leach writes about the gaps between reality and perception, about writing and anxiety, body and brain, breaking and making, succeeding and failing, conventionality and independence. Negative Space is a memoir about writing and of art as a salve and a means of escape, marriage as a refuge and a trap, the nature of home, and what happens when everything falls apart. Copies of Negative Space will be on sale by the Dingle Bookshop at the event. The author has agreed to sign copies at the end of the talk.
