Sara Baume is one of Ire­land’s best young writ­ers. Born to no­madic par­ents while they trav­elled around in a car­a­van, Sara spent her for­ma­tive years in County Cork, be­fore study­ing fine art at Dun Laoghaire Col­lege of Art and De­sign and cre­ative writ­ing at Trin­ity Col­lege. Her sec­ond novel, A Line Made By Walk­ing, beau­ti­fully por­trayed the break­down of an artist in ru­ral Ire­land and was one of the finest books of 2017. She talks to us about how she and her boyfriend dis­cov­ered “the most ridicu­lous thing” they can do on Christ­mas Day.
