I had such an interesting evening at the Dublin Film Festival tonight listening to William Oldroyd talk about the inspiration behind the wonderful direction and cinematography of his first feature film Lady Macbeth. The film itself is fantastic and the performances by Florence Pugh and Naomi Ackie are inspiring. On my list for this weekend? Devouring everything I can find written by Alice Birch and getting in some walks in nature…

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

I was looking for an easy, entertaining read, and this was just that. Moriarty’s writing reminds me a bit of Gillian Flynn or at least the type of storytelling does – female protagonists with a dark past. I enjoyed it and look forward to the miniseries coming next month.

Lenny Interview – Emma Donoghue

I love this recent quote from the author.. (from an interview featured in the latest issue of Lenny)

With my novels, I tend to put my historian’s hat on and take the facts as far as they go. Was there a train that afternoon at three o’clock? What was the name of the bird that would have been flying by? Then I think, Great, whip off my historian’s hat, put on my fiction writer’s hat, and I’m thrilled to be making it all up again.

I'm Katy.
