Product description

A Line Made by Walking is a lyrical tale about a young woman struggling with mental illness. Set over the course of several months, Baume draws us into the deeply personal story of Frankie, a young artist retreating from, and struggling to engage with the world while living alone in a rundown cottage belonging to her late grandmother. Worried about by her mother and neighbour, abandoned by - and having abandoned - her life in Dublin, Frankie turns to photographing the natural world around her to try to extract some meaning from it. Told in honest, poetic prose, Baume creates a startling narrative, full of raw emotion, laced with artful description, surgical incisiveness, and complex characterisation, and through it all explores one person's fragility, obsession, despair, and hope.

Spill Simmer Falter Wither

A misfit man finds a misfit dog. Ray, aged fifty-seven, 'too old for starting over, too young for giving up', and One Eye, a vicious little bugger, smaller than expected, a good ratter.
