Traverse the blurring lines of poetry and prose, past and present, fiction and memoir with Doireann Ní Ghríofa's bestselling prose debut The Ghost in the Throat - alongside acclaimed fellow poet Éireann Lorsung.

Many writers have used classic literary works as a lens for examining their own lives, but none have ever provided the visceral thrill that Doireann Ní Ghríofa has. She doesn't meditate on a mysterious 18th-century Irish lament, she wrestles with it, turning it over and over to reveal myriad intimate connections to modern motherhood and marriage. To read A Ghost in the Throat is to hold in your hands a living, beating heart.
