Book Launch

Join us to launch Sarah Tierney’s ‘beautifully assured debut’ Making Space.

Why do we hold onto things we don’t need?

Miriam is twenty-nine: temping, living with a flatmate who is no longer a friend, and still trying to find her place in life. She falls in love with Erik after he employs her to clear out his paper-packed home. They are worlds apart: he is forty-five, a successful photographer and artist and an obsessive hoarder still haunted by the end of his marriage. Miriam has an unsuccessful love life and has just got rid of most of her belongings. Somehow, they must find a way to reach each other.

‘Part love story, part psychological slow-burner… Making Space …marks the arrival of an elegant and thrilling new voice in literary fiction.’ – Emma Jane Unsworth.
