Product Description

It’s New Year’s Eve, and Beth plans to spend a whole year alone, in her snug, safe house. But she has reckoned without floppy-eared, tail-wagging Mouse, who comes nosing to her window. Followed shortly by his owner, Alice. As Beth’s year of solitude rolls out, Alice gently steals her way first into Beth’s house and later into her heart. And by the time New Year’s Eve comes round again – who knows?

A tender and delicate love story in verse, The Space Between is a tale of how warmth, support and friendship can overcome mental anguish.

PRAISE FOR THE SPACE BETWEEN

‘Meg Grehan has written a fearlessly honest account of love: beautifully crafted and elegantly told’- Brian Conaghan, author of Costa Children’s Book Award winner
The Bombs That Brought Us Together

‘Artful, compelling and above all true’ – Deirdre Sullivan, author of Needlework

‘Absolutely breathtaking’ – Jacq Murphy, Eason Booksellers

‘Grehan is a poet, a romantic and at the same time a realist. She’s a talented writer and, above all, she’s a strong Irish voice crafting beautiful, important stories about mental illness and the lives of LGBT people.This stunning debut is sure to make waves upon its release and I for one can’t wait to read more of her work.’ – The Arcade

‘Gorgeous crumbs of consciousness each poem. And the story, and the ending… I love Beth’s story with Alice. It’s raw and romantic.’ – Olivia Hope, author

‘The style of the writing sits perfectly with the state of Beth’s mind, and the ebb and flow of the text, the repetitions, and even the layout of the words on the page all combined to make it a beautiful reading experience… it gave me such an immediately intimate feeling, almost like I was snooping on Beth’s personal life, that I found that I was caught up in the book straight away.’ – The Bookbag

‘This is a beautiful book in so many ways. The cover is gorgeous, and sets the tone for the book. The Space Between is a tender love story; quiet, emotional and moving. Grehan really conveys Beth’s anxiety and the ways in which her phobias trap and restrict her… It is always good to see more LGBTQ love stories out there, particularly one portrayed in such a positive light… Above all, this is a beautifully written work. Even in the third person, we get right inside Beth’s head. The poems bring us right into her consciousness, and they flow beautifully.’ – Jenny Duffy, bookseller and reviewer (read the full review here)
