Happily ever afters don’t have to involve a fairy tale wedding followed by staying together for the sake of the children, come what may, says début author Cristín Leach.

The art critic speaks candidly about her marriage breakdown in her memoir, Negative Space. A text message pinging onto her phone marked the beginning of the end for her relationship.

Cristin also reflects on life and her relarionship to art and writing, and says: “I don’t feel that there’s any one reading for a work of art. Everyone who encounters music, poetry, books, paintings, films brings themselves to it. There’s something shared when we all encounter it.”

Negative Space by Cristín Leach is published by Merrion Press. More here: https://irishacademicpress.ie/product/negative-space/
