Just Like Life: Tracey Thorn & Sinéad Gleeson

Sunday, 26 May
Smock Alley Theatre
€12 / €10

A welcome return back to Dublin for singer-songwriter and author Tracey Thorn! After forming her first band Marine Girls at school, she spent seventeen years in bestselling duo Everything But The Girl with her partner Ben Watt. Her first memoir Bedsit Disco Queen focused on how she broke into the music industry. Her new book Another Planet - a memoir of teenage life in a seventies suburban town where nothing happens - is a beautifullyobserved reflection on teenage angst, family and music. Sinéad Gleeson’s debut essay collection Constellations, described as ‘a powerful, inspiring gift to readers everywhere’, tells the story of a life in a body as it goes through sickness, health and motherhood, and explores a range of subjects: art, illness, ghosts, grief and our very ways of seeing. In conversation with music journalist, podcaster and editor of RTÉ Brainstorm, Jim Carroll.
