Pre-recorded event, brought to you from the grounds of the world-renowned Ashford Castle.

With sharp-witted reflections on grief, mental illness, addiction and motherhood, Corpsing: My Body and Other Horror Shows is an ambitious new literary collection from Sophie White and non-fiction trailblazers Tramp Press.

Hailed as ‘earthy and transcendent, painful and powerful’, Corpsing has garnered praise from writers such as Marian Keyes and Mike McCormack. Louise O’Neill has praised it as ‘an essential collection of essays of brutal, flaying honesty about what it means to be a woman’. Sophie is joined in this event by beloved features writer and question-asker, Patrick Freyne, for what promises to be a powerful conversation.

Sophie White is a writer and podcaster. Her first three books, Recipes for a Nervous Breakdown, Filter This and Unfiltered have been bestsellers and award nominees. Corpsing: My Body and Other Horror Shows was published by Tramp Press in March 2021. She lives in Dublin with her husband and her three sons.

Patrick Freyne spent most of his twenties trying to be a rock star before turning to the much more stable and secure world of journalism. He is a features writer at The Irish Times. OK, Let’s Do Your Stupid Idea is his first book.

This is a pre-recorded event. It will not have a Q&A.
