LOUISE SAYS

Irish Examiner - Weekend - - Feature -

READ: Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Katherine Web­ber. This novel for young adults is a bril­liant and mov­ing por­trayal of how loss can dev­as­tate a fam­ily. It also deals with toxic love and con­sent in a smart, deft man­ner with­out ever feel­ing heavy handed.

VISIT: The Hugh Lane Gallery to see Just Be Your­self. This is Rachel Ma­clean’s first solo ex­hi­bi­tion in Ire­land, and it is bizarre and thought-pro­vok­ing and deeply dis­turb­ing. Make sure to watch her short film, It’s What’s In­side That Counts, a dystopian hor­ror that skew­ers con­sumer de­sire.
