Waterstones Says

Filled with hope, heartbreak, missteps and discoveries, Intimacies is a luminous and moving collection of short stories about young women in search of their place in the world.

*Includes the winner of the 2021 BBC National Short Story Award* 'Precise and beautifully controlled fictions but with strange, wild energies pulsing along just beneath the surface. A tremendous collection.' Kevin Barry, author of Night Boat to Tangier Intimacies exquisitely charts the steps and missteps of young women trying to find their place in the world. From a Belfast student ordering illegal drugs online to end an unwanted pregnancy to a young mother's brush with mortality; from a Christmas Eve walking the city centre streets when everything seems possible, to a night flight from Canada which could change a life irrevocably, these are stories of love, loss and exile, of new beginnings and lives lived away from 'home'. Taking in, too, the lives of other women who could be guiding lights - from Monica Lewinsky to Caroline Norton to Sinead O'Connor - Intimacies offers keenly felt and subtly revealing insights into the heartbreak and hope of modern life. 'Heart-stoppingly good.' Lisa McGee, writer and creator of Derry Girls
