About this event

The sixteen stories in What to Put in a Suitcase follow a cast of characters destined to navigate a rich variety of situations that are by turns perplexing, stimulating, threatening. These stories grapple with individual psychology and with wider themes of justice and the place of the individual in contemporary society, at times seasoned with a sly humour.

"These are stories written in spare, pared-back language, with images that startle, packed with interior monologues that are rich with insight and observation and reflect the challenges of modern life." Catherine Dunne

Tiger Moth is a magical collection of poems whose themes range over memories and emotions evocative of key moments and milestones in life, where the particular expands to embrace experiences that are universal, yet imbued with the poet's unique vision.

"These unsettling, dark lyrics have a wonderful verbal energy; a mythic imagination. Tierney manages to chart the mind's search for significance with poems seeking similarities between the natural world and the traumas of human life." Seán Hewitt
