Waterstones Says

Tender-hearted and imbued with the same candid compassion as her acclaimed essay collection Notes to Self, Pine's exquisite debut novel traces the rich inner and outer lives of two Dublin women across a single day.

Signed Edition

A Standard Edition is available here

The brilliant debut novel from Emilie Pine, author of the international bestseller Notes to Self.

Dublin, 7 October 2019. One day, one city, two women: Ruth and Pen. Neither known to the other, but both asking themselves the same questions: how to be with others and how, when the world doesn't seem willing to make space for them, to be with themselves?

Ruth's marriage to Aidan is in crisis. Today she needs to make a choice - to stay or not to stay, to take the risk of reaching out, or to pull up the drawbridge. For teenage Pen, today is the day the words will flow, and she will speak her truth to Alice, to ask for what she so desperately wants.

Deeply involving, poignant and radiantly intelligent, it is a portrait of the limits of grief and love, of how we navigate our inner and outer landscapes, and the tender courage demanded by the simple, daily quest of living.
