Waterstones Says

One of Ireland’s finest contemporary writers provides a fascinating window onto her creative process whilst musing on the role of the artist in society in this concise, enchantingly written volume.

Shortlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize 2021

In this contemplative short narrative, artist and acclaimed writer Sara Baume charts the daily process of making and writing, exploring what it is to create and to live as an artist. Elegantly encompassing images and in itself a significant artefact, handiwork offers observations that are at once gentle and devastating on the nature of art, grief and a life lived well.

A glimpse into the process of one Ireland's best writers, handiwork is Baume's non-fiction debut, written with the keen eye for nature and beauty as well as the extraordinary versatility Sara Baume's fans have come to expect.

MEDIA REVIEWS

LONGLISTED FOR THE RATHBONES FOLIO PRIZE ‘Every devotee of literature and art should read this rare, bright-lit, hard-won book, and every student of life — that is to say, everyone.' SEBASTIAN BARRY 'A beautifully written memoir and meditation on grief, nature and the creative process.' TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT 'Embodies the same thoughtful originality and striking close ups of the natural world as her two novels.' IRISH INDEPENDENT 'Beautiful... could be compared with Denise Riley’s Time Lived, Without Its Flow in how beautifully rendered the passing of days is – or with Maggie Nelson’s Bluets, in how delicately the poetry of the work is presented on the page.' IRISH TIMES 'Its pint-sized print edition is itself an objet d’art.' THE TIMES 'handiwork demands to be experienced and felt. It is no less than Baume's will, her pains, her talents, her tenderness.' RTE.

“Portrait of an Artist as a Young Woman”

A beautiful little gem of a book, Sara Baume (in my opinion) is Ireland's most honest and original writer today, after only three books she has already written an exquisite and eclectic body of work, from her... More
