Virtual Gliterary Lunch Hour Louise Nealon - 24th June 2021
Eighteen-year-old Debbie White lives on a dairy farm with her mother, Maeve, and her uncle, Billy. Billy sleeps out in a caravan in the garden with a bottle of whiskey and the stars overhead for company. Maeve spends her days recording her dreams, which she believes to be prophecies.
This world is Debbie’s normal. As she begins life as a university student and navigates between sophisticated new friends and home life, things start to unravel. Maeve’s eccentricity tilts into something darker, while Billy’s drinking gets worse. Debbie struggles to cope with the weirdest, most difficult parts of herself, her family and her small life.
Rustle up a delicious lunch, pour yourself something sparkling and be transported to Ireland as Louise discusses the inspirations for her writing.
