An extraordinarily intimate book of essays that chart the experiences that have made Sinéad Gleeson the woman and the writer she is today.

I have come to think of all the metal in my body as artificial stars, glistening beneath the skin, a constellation of old and new metal. A map, a tracing of connections and a guide to looking at things from different angles. How do you tell the story of a life in a body, as it goes through sickness, health, motherhood? How do you tell that story when you are not just a woman but a woman in Ireland? In the powerful and daring essays in Constellations Sinéad Gleeson does that very thing. All of life is within these pages, from birth to first love, pregnancy to motherhood, terrifying sickness, old age and loss to death itself. Throughout this wide-ranging collection she also turns her restless eye outwards delving into work, art and our very ways of seeing. In the tradition of some of our finest life writers, and yet still in her own spirited, generous voice, Sinéad takes us on a journey that is both uniquely personal and yet universal in its resonance. Here is the fierce joy and pain of being alive.

‘Constellations is glitteringly brilliant ... Political, poetic, tender and angry, a remarkable book and an astonishing debut.’
Robert MacFarlane

‘Utterly magnificent. Raw, thought-provoking and galvanising.'
Eimear McBride
