Sinéad Hynes is a tough, driven, funny young property developer with a terrifying secret.
No-one knows it: not her fellow patients in a failing hospital, and certainly not her family.
She has confided only in Google and a shiny magpie.
But she can’t go on like this, tirelessly trying to outstrip her past and in mortal fear of her
future. Across the ward, Margaret Rose is running her chaotic family from her rose-gold
Nokia. In the neighboring bed, Jane, rarely but piercingly lucid, is searching for a decent
bra and for someone to listen. Sinéad needs them both.
As You Were is about intimate histories, institutional failures, the kindness of strangers,
and the darkly present past of modern Ireland. It is about women’s stories and women’s
struggles. It is about seizing the moment to be free.
Wildly funny, desperately tragic, inventive and irrepressible, As You Were introduc
