Emilie Pine

Emilie Pine came to prominence when her collection of personal essays Notes On Self was first published in 2018. The collection sees the UCD professor of modern drama examine her own life with searing honesty, exploring infertility, grief, love and the impact alcoholism has on a family. The book saw her become a magnet for women looking to speak their truth and as such, she has heard dozens of tales on heartbreak, love and the female existence.

Martina Devlin

Martina Devlin has written 11 books and two plays and is an award-winning journalist for The Sunday Independent  – her latest novel is based on the life of Edith Somerville of ‘Somerville and Ross’ fame – authors of The Irish R.M.

Cauvery Madhavan hosts a wide ranging, open discussion with Emilie Pine and Martina Develin. These award winning writers tackle grief and love, identity, courage, female bonds.

Edith by Martina Devlin Dingle Literary Festival 2022

Edith is a captivating novel based on the life of Edith Somerville (1858–1949) of ‘Somerville and Ross’ fame.

It is the early 1920s and Ireland is on the cusp of radical change. Amid the turbulence of the revolutionary period, Irish R.M. writer Edith Somerville struggles to find a place for herself.

As fellow members of the ascendancy are burned out, Edith fears for her beloved West Cork home, Drishane House – the source of her inspiration. Violent civil war erupts across the country and a new state is born, with people forced to weigh their loyalties.

In this dazzling portrayal of a protofeminist who straddles two cultures, we see a writer and artist in the round, holding fast to hope, humour and her steadfast spirit – even as her world changes beyond recognition.

Copies of Edith will be on sale by the Dingle Bookshop at the event. The author has agreed to sign copies at the end of the talk.

Ruth & Pen is the fictional debut from Emilie Pine, author of the international bestseller Notes to Self . Deeply involving, poignant and radiantly intelligent, it is a portrait of the limits of grief and love, of how we navigate our inner and outer landscapes, and the tender courage demanded by the simple, daily quest of living.
